Emmaus Coventry & Warwickshire
The community house has been the home of Emmaus in Coventry & Warwickshire since 1993. It is an old building dating back to about 1650 with many special features. Since Emmaus restored and moved into the building in 1993 it has accommodated many people who would otherwise have had no home. Emmaus has given those men and women a home, voluntary employment but more importantly a reason to get out of their bed. Emmaus Communities give people a real feeling of belonging, which in turn gives them confidence and self respect. All of which if you are homeless and on the streets is driven out of you by the way other people treat you.
What we do
Emmaus Coventry & Warwickshire is situated on two sites in Coventry. Our companions live at The Old Vicarage on the Brinklow Road which is set in an acre and a half of it’s own grounds. Any companion with gardening skills take pleasure in keeping these grounds neat and tidy. We are also in the process of growing our own produce in our small allotment which will help us towards our aim to being self sufficient. We can accommodate upto 15 previously homeless adults - male and female. We supply accommodation, all meals, basic clothing and toiletries along with support within a secure environment. In return, the companions work within our community to the best of their abilities. This can be in the home, on the grounds or in our shop at 70 RED LANE Coventry. Our shop is where we sell good quality second hand furniture and Bric-a- Brac and where we are able to make minor repairs in our fully equipped workshop. Our companions also work as part of our Van Crew; collecting donated furniture and delivering sold items.
Well here we are again time for another newsletter. Actually this one is well over due and I apologise to the regular supporters and readers but it has been so very busy here over the last 10 months we have struggled to find time to fit it all in. Because of this I thought I would start with a review of the year to fill you all in with what we have been up to. The biggest news is that we have expanded our Community from 15 to 18. We have rented a small house where the Companions
that have moved in have more independence but still receive the support of the Community.
