HARP: helping the homeless in Southend

From HARP:

HARP began as a Job Club in 1987 in Valkyrie Road but with an increasing number of homeless people using the service, it developed into Southend Centre for the Homeless with the later addition of Southend Night Shelter. These then split into two organisations running successfully for many years. Our services were run on a shoestring, relying heavily on volunteers.

The two organisations were encouraged to join together to provide a more cohesive service to homeless people. Therefore in 2002 the Day Centre and Night Shelter joined to become the Homeless Action Resource Project (HARP).
