Hope on the Streets

Hope Church and Nurture Academy have joined together for an exciting partnership! Our plan is to deliver 288 haircuts to those who are facing homelessness within our community.

This is a perfect partnership because Nurture Academy is able to reach out to different organisations working with homeless individuals; we will liaise and build relationships in order to:

  1. Create an opportunity for Hope Church to serve and to show love.
  2. Establish areas where Nurture Academy and Hope Church can support these organisations in the future.

The project is running over the course of 6 months from November 2018 to April 2019; visiting at least 1 organisation per month. Hope Church members will serve by attending on these days and serving where there is a need, talking, listening and encouraging those who are facing homelessness. Nurture Academy is providing the barbers and hair stylists.

The Barbers, Stylists and volunteers are able to encourage and uplift clients as they work.

Receiving a fresh hairstyle along with other factors can really aid in embodying a fresh outlook.

The clients really appreciate this service. See images below of the work being undertaken by the team at HCN and Nurture Academy.
