Grant aids night shelter opening

HCF Major Grant programme provided Resolve with a grant for £24,284 towards the launch of Resolve Night Shelter and SPARKS community café in Hatfield
The night shelter opened for guests on Monday 15 July 2019 and was a culmination of many months of hard work by the Resolve team. The charity is an adult drug and alcohol treatment service who support people suffering from issues arising from misuse and people who are homeless or at risk of being made homeless.

The project will allow for Resolve to help more vulnerable people and provide access to healthy food, one to one support and a safe space to sleep for those facing homelessness. The café is also a place for the community to come together in a ‘pay what you can’ setting.

Helen Gray Foundation Director for HCF said; “Across Hertfordshire we are seeing a rise in homelessness, with demand for support considerably outstripping supply. We are delighted that we were able to provide this significant grant to such a worthy cause that will provide shelter and support to those in need.”
