Time to pledge your support!
YMCA Humber is calling on local residents to come together and sleep rough for one night on 7th February 2020 to support local, homeless young people.
Last year local people helped raise in excess of £32,000 for local charities as more than 150 brave souls in Grimsby and Hull took part in the event. This year we are looking for even more people to participate to help raise awareness of homelessness issues and to raise valuable funds.
The event will take place on 7th February 2020 at Freshney Place, Grimsby and Wilberforce College Hull, from 6pm to 6am. Participants will spend the night outside and get involved with a shelter building competition, a warm-up session, plus some fun activities.
This year YMCA Humber are looking to raise funds to support the development of Move IN & Move ON initiatives. Many people arrive with absolutely nothing. During the Move IN, besides providing accommodation and support services on site ‘the necessities’ are also provided. When residents are ready to be independent again, the support of our Move ON initiative assist residents back into independent living within the community. YMCA Humber’s coaches outline the needs of a resident to identify what is required. It could be sourcing furniture and making applications for financial support. On Moving Day, the box van is used to deliver furniture and help set up the new home ready to sleep that evening.
YMCA Humber has operated in the area since 1882 and now provides supported accommodation for up to 103 each night of the year, training & education services, mental health support and youth and community services.
