Welcome to Emmaus St Albans

Emmaus St Albans is a homelessness charity providing up to 33 formerly homeless people with a safe home environment and the opportunity to work.

Emmaus collects donated furniture and other household items which are recycled, restored and resold. This funds the community and helps people to move on from homelessness. We provide skilled work and training and a stable home environment, thereby giving people a chance to regain their self-esteem.

There are no hand-outs at Emmaus St Albans. Our companions work full time, refurbishing and reselling donated furniture and various other recycling activities to earn their place in a working community.
