OUR VISION STATEMENT
Crawley Open House provides support and services for those suffering the
effects of homelessness, unemployment, loneliness, discrimination, or
other forms of social exclusion. Our support is available to anyone in
recently retired from Open House after over 20 years of service. Thank
you Sue for everything. We'll all really miss you.
The East Grinstead Justice and Peace Group
recently held their
Sleep Out representing all churches in the town working together
ecumenically to promote social justice. It was, in their words, "a warm
night with light showers, friendly chats with interested young people -
no hardship for one night."
In the last
25 years the EG J&P Group has raised at least £80,000 for homeless
charities - national and local. This year, the benefitting charities
were Crawley Open, House, The Easter Team and Worthing Churches Homeless
slept out this year with the youngest being 15 and the oldest 70. The
event was attended by Deputy Mayor Councillor Bob Mainstone.
at Crawley Open House woild like to say thank you and well done to the
whole group for their committed efforts to help those less affected by
homelessness. We would also urge you to consider supporting one or more
