Mission and Vision The Need The need 254,514 homeless in England at the end of 2016 128,000 children homeless at Christmas in 2017 51,275 churches in the UK by 2020 Imagine if every church had a Hope into Action home. We believe this is a possibility. With the support of people like you we have opened over 65 houses since 2010. Each home is a story of people prompted to share resources or time with those who have less. Watch our video where we celebrate our 50th home and see what you can do.
