Supporting those in homeless shelters.

From 2016 we have been supporting the women who live at the homeless shelter in Katowice.
Our work in the shelter started by organising an English style picnic for the women and children in the shelter and joined youth centre. At the picnic we organised a spa afternoon followed by games and activities more details can be found here.

Following the succcess of the picnic we decided to organise a Creative Cafe for the women within the shelter where each week we would organise activities from the women living in the shelter from origami, sewing to exercising and board games.

The purpose of this projects was through activities, and coversations over a cup of tea or coffee we would: get to know the women in the shelter, help with social intergrations, break down of social barriers and get to how we could help them in other practical ways such as supplying clothes, furniture and going with them for hospital and doctor visits.

This the creative cafe ran for 2.5 years however unfortunately we no longer have a room we can use for such a meeting. Currently our volunteers in conjuction with the foundation Klub Chrześcijański “PRZYJACIEL Nr1 ” regularly visit the centre for individual meetings with the women

Once every few months the hairdresser master  Mr. Marcin Drewniok and beautician Amanda Warzyńska visit the shelter and peform their magic at bringing out the women’s inner beauty.
