Emmaus Cambridge launches Hub's focus on homelessness

Focus on homelessness

On Wednesday 22 January, Deputy Community Manager John McGovern launched Cambridge Hub's focus on homelessness with a talk at Clare College. John shared his experiences before and since becoming part of the Emmaus family as part of the Hub’s desire to help more young people become aware of some of the problems and challenges that face ordinary people who find themselves homeless.

The Cambridge Hub is part of a network of university-based organisations that encourage students to get involved with social and environmental challenges. The Hub team is looking to meet with all of the organisations fighting homelessness and poverty in the Cambridge area and will shortly be meeting with Community Director Diane Docherty to discuss what support they can give.
