Emmaus supports people who have experienced homelessness by providing them with a home and meaningful work in a community setting.
The first Emmaus community opened in 1992 and there are now 24 communities spread across the UK. There are also eight Emmaus groups currently working to open new communities.
Emmaus now supports around 600 formerly homeless people, by providing them with a home for as long as they need it and meaningful work in our social enterprises. There are plans to increase this to 750 places by 2017.
You only have to read the stories of some of the people we have supported to see what a difference Emmaus makes.
