We take our values from the teachings and example of St Vincent De Paul, a Christian and social reformer who co-founded the Daughters of Charity in 1633.
As a Vincentian organisation, we seek to be a place of hope, aspiration, change and innovation, underpinned by the values of charity and love. We use these values to drive us forward as we try to bring about our vision of a society where street homelessness no longer exists, and everyone has a place to call home.
We are always happy to attend services and community events to speak about the work of The Passage.
We also have a range of exciting opportunities available for the community to get involved. These include:
- Volunteering as individuals or in groups
- Holding your own fundraising collection
- Running your own fundraising events such as bake sales and sponsored walks
- Forming your own support group to keep up-to-date about our work, and the ways you can support us
- Praying for our clients and the success of The Passage
- Promoting our work, events and fundraising campaigns online and in local newsletters
We also work with confirmation groups and are happy to speak with groups and help encourage younger members of congregations to be aware of homelessness and to be committed to ending street homelessness.
