Hope Lives Here is a fundraising campaign for Shiloh House crisis centre for abused women. We are raising funds to purchase a property large enough to accommodate approximately 20 women and children who comes to us seeking help. The main objective for this centre is to provide protection, response, shelter and self-empowerment services to women, and children who are affected by conflict, domestic and gender-based violence, human trafficking and abuse including unaccompanied, separated and missing children and other vulnerable persons.
Shiloh House Crisis Centre began in 2006 as a result of our 'Women of Worth' street ministries during which UCEC came across an alarmingly high number of abused women and children in need of refuge. Shiloh House provides support and counselling services while serving as a safe haven for beneficiaries to deal with their circumstances while living a dignified life. The is a place for temporary relief where victims of gender-based violence, human trafficking and other forms of abuse stay until they can be resettled sustainably. Beneficiaries are provided with accommodation, food, clothing & toiletries, counselling, a care plan and referrals to specialised or long term services. Over and above these services, they are also assisted with health needs, a care plan – personal development, typing of CV's and applications for jobs, ID documents and grants.
