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.
Wendy was a drug addict, involved in prostitution and street sleeping. A regular visitor to the Whitechapel Mission, coming to us for somewhere warm and safe to relax, she was never quite ready to get her life back on track. With our help and support, she was able, eventually, to leave the streets of Whitechapel and move into permanent accommodation, but continued to abuse drugs and fund it through prostitution. Wendy died in 2012, leaving two children. We were never able to reach Wendy, but could offer her friendship and somewhere she could be safe.
