Bringing hope where there is despair
Members of staff update our Facebook page with the latest news from the Whitechapel Mission. Here is a taster of what has been going on. Click the date of any story to be taken to Facebook.
Pete was a glue sniffer for many years, and an alcoholic. Very familiar to the police and criminal system and never quite ready to change his life. And then one morning he said he had had enough and would we help him sort things out. We managed to find a detox and rehab which Pete grabbed with both hands and sorted out his addiction problems. Upon completion of the therapy, we were able to find a hostel, but with no work experience, a criminal record, it was going to be difficult to move forward from there. But, we managed to find him employment and he was able to move into his own flat and finally start his life.
