VISION - We are youth and community based project in Shoreditch and our aim is to show transformational love to those in our community who are more vulnerable through real and practical ways.
The Women's Night Shelter is a new project starting on Sunday 13th January 2019 and running until Sunday 31st March 2019. We will offer shelter to women who are rough sleeping every night of the week. We are working with the Housing Justice and a number of other churches and organisations in East London to offer shelter to up to 12 vulnerable homeless women over the coldest months of winter.
Our aim is to provide a warm and loving environment for these women while they are being sheltered through serving a hot meal and offering beauty/hair treatments or just chatting with the women and helping to create a loving space so that they feel comfortable, relaxed and welcomed.
The host sites and days will be at various locations, we are looking for volunteers specifically for the following:
Mon, Tues, Weds, Sat - St Leonards Church, Shoreditch - hosted by Sapphire Community Group
Thurs - Arch 76, Bethnal Green - hosted by Arch 76 (a project for vulnerable women)
Sun - The Tab Centre, Shoreditch - hosted by TransformShoreditch

Esther said it better!
Hear from someone who joined us a year ago.
"I found my identity here. I found love. I found a home. I found a place that not only builds dreams but births a legacy. Before coming to Sapphire, I did not think it was possible to keep going in life. I thought that all hope in the world was lost. I came across them on Meetup in early 2017 and since then I have reminded in a place that accepted me for who I am" - Esther (POET)

YOUNG PEOPLE Impacted
Since 2015 up till now we have had over 800 young people come through our doors. This has been through events and workshops we run over the year.
True happiness can only exist in acceptance - for most of my life, I have lived in pain, anger, denial, anguish, depression, oppression - you name it! I just never fully felt happy in my self. The day I finally felt accepted was the day I became truly happy.
I did not need to be defined the norms, rules, standards and regulations of this world. I no longer felt I had to be validated by other women. I no longer felt the need to conform to the lies of this world. I knew that the only acceptance I ever needed was from him. No longer do I spend my time waiting for people to call me valuable nor adequate! I now see me! I now see my worth! I love me! But most of all, I am free to be me.
