Hope into Action Eastbourne provides homes for the most vulnerable in society in partnership with local churches. Our model is built on the belief that when people have a safe, secure home surrounded by loving, non-judgemental relationships, they will find the strength and motivation to make positive life choices.
In partnership with Hope into Action, Kingdom Way Trust have a vision to enable churches in Eastbourne to open more houses. We believe that the Church should be at the forefront of providing homes along with love, community, support and mentoring which empowers people to turn their lives around.
In 2017 we opened our first Hope into Action house in Eastbourne for two women. A second home, for two men, opened in 2018. Now we also have some individual units where we are able to provide a home and support.
