Interested in starting a Winter Night Shelter?
'Our mission is to support the Church .... '
Stable One came into existence to help churches work together to minister to those experiencing homelessness in our community.
We have been working hard since August 2016 to bring our Christian community together - to pray and also to act. The 2017 Winter Night Shelter pilot project was our first big effort and took an enormous amount of work (read about it here). On the back of a successful pilot and plenty of learning, we ran a second Winter Night Shelter in 2018 (read the project summary here).
As an organisation we are seeking to equip the wider Church by providing resources and support. We are developing the Stable One Winter Shelter Network with a view to seeing every town and city across Australia running their own projects. Contact us if you are interested in being kept up to date.
Stable One has put together a Tool Kit for churches who are interested in running their own Winter Night Shelter. It contains practical information, along with sample forms, policies and procedures and role descriptions.
We would like to share these resources to give others a head start. We can also offer support by attending meetings, giving advice, assisting with training and supporting coordinators. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
