Friends of Adullam Homes

Following my visit to the Bethany Project in January, we welcomed Angela Clarke and Hazel Valerino of Adullam Homes to our service last Sunday.

Hazel explained the beginnings of Adullam, which started with the vision of Walter Moore, whose Christian faith inspired him to work with others to establish projects that supported vulnerable people.

Adullam Homes now works with a range of people whose needs vary but who are all in need of support before they can gain their independence. Needs include:
  • Young people leaving care
  • Vulnerable women or men with dependant children
  • Victims of domestic violence
  • Single homeless people
  • Refugees and Asylum seekers
  • Mental health support needs
  • Learning difficulties
  • Living with HIV
  • Drug and alcohol misuse
  • Offenders and those at risk of offending
We're delighted to establish a partnership, which began with the generous donation of toys and gifts at Christmas and hope that we can respond to Adullam's hopes to create sustainable relationships with churches.
