In 2014 we celebrated our 40th anniverary. Back in 1974 Michael Mulligan decided to help the local street homeless by providing free food from the back door of the Bishop's House in Marriott Street, Northampton. The Soup Kitchen, as it was known then, was born!
We've grown and developed over those 40 years into the Northampton Hope Centre but still uphold the basic principles that Michael and his friends operated by.
We look after over 100 people every day in our day centre at Oasis House, but now we are as much about giving people a hand-up as well as a hand-out. We are entirely reliant upon the support and generosity of our local community - individuals, schools, churches / faith groups, sports and social clubs and local businesses to keep our range of services available to those who really need them.
There are many ways you can help us:
We give hope to local people who have fallen on hard times and need extensive support and encouragement to rebuild their lives. Some of them are now progressing, so they can get a job, a place to live and re-gain their independence!
If you'd like to play your part in helping us deliver these crucial services, then contact us on 0845 519 9371 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Without our wonderful supporter community, over those 40 years we wouldn't be here. Thank you for all your efforts on our behalf, and please keep on doing it!
