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.
Charlie had been sniffing glue since he was 12 years old and said it was his way of dealing with the abuse he received. A long time visitor to the Whitechapel Mission, he always claimed he was not ready to leave the streets, so we welcomed him each morning and waited. Today, Charlie is clean of glue and has his own place to live. It was just a case of waiting until he was ready for our help. We don't see much of Charlie these days, but that is normal. He doesn't need us any longer.
