Dear Supporters,

We are living in worrying and uncertain times and many of you have told us you’re worried about the impact of the coronavirus on people who are homeless. The people that Shekinah support are more likely to suffer from complex health conditions, can’t often wash their hands and in many cases would find it impossible to self isolate. 

The situation is changing on a daily basis and we are working hard to maintain service delivery. To this end we have prioritised keeping open the Drop in Centre in Plymouth and the Hostel in Torbay so that we can be there for those who need us. 

All financial donations you make during this difficult time will help us not only maintain these services, but also help us extend services such as 24/7 phone contact during this difficult time.  

As the weeks progress, if we end up supporting more people who we manage to get into accommodation to self isolate, we are planning to implement a food delivery service so that they can continue to receive support.   

Please help us to not only end homelessness but to save lives.

If you would like to make a donation we have an appeal running in our fundraise section on our website.

John Hamblin 

Chief Executive Shekinah
