Action for Homeless


Inside Hope House – St Albans’ innovative new haven for homeless

The name says it all, a haven of hope for those who previously had none, a dry house for the homeless which is more like a home.

On first impressions, Hope House is a typical four-bedroom terraced home, tucked away on a backstreet in Wheathampstead, but what it actually offers is something remarkable. This isn’t like your standard night shelter, where residents are thrown out into the street at dawn, it’s somewhere people live, grow and change.
