Working at Wycombe Homeless Connection
Wycombe Homeless Connection is a Christian-led charity that serves people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in south Buckinghamshire. We work within our faith foundation to bring about God’s love in action to end homelessness in our community.
Our faith foundation
Our faith foundation drives our vision, mission and values, below, which in turn influence the way we work and interact with everyone we come into contact with.
We serve our community out of a biblical mandate. We are happy to explain our faith but we do not promote religion nor evangelise. We serve and work with people of all faiths and none and respect the diversity of people we serve. Among our wide range of supporters, we rely on close relationships with many local churches who provide premises, financial support and many of our volunteers.
That south Buckinghamshire is transformed into a place where no one loses their home and that there is suitable housing and housing security for all – because we believe that is what God wants for our community.
To help people who are homeless or facing homelessness by:
- Preventing homelessness before it starts
- Reducing harm for people who are homeless
- Helping house people who are homeless
- Defending the rights of people who are homeless or facing homelessness
Our Christian faith guides everything we do and inspires our four core values.
We treat every person with compassion, caring for the whole person, taking account of an individual’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs, especially those who have been harmed by homelessness, or are facing homelessness.
We respect and value every person as created in God’s image and will treat them with love, dignity and kindness.
We build trust acting responsibly and with integrity in all we do, committing to achieve the best outcomes for every person we encounter and work with. We trust God will, through our supporters and community, provide all we need to do our work.
We achieve more when we learn from and collaborate with others including the people we serve, our partners, our supporters, our staff and our volunteers.
