HARP leads the way to End Rough Sleeping and Opens its first specialist hostel

July 24, 2015

HARP, Southend’s only independent charity which serves the needs of the single homeless, is launching its End Rough Sleeping Campaign with the opening of a refurbished 11 bedroom hostel to help those with complex needs.


Vera House, named in memory of the wife of a HARP benefactor Ivan Heath, will be officially opened on July 23 following months of transformation from Southend’s former Night Shelter for the homeless into a modern, purpose built safe haven for Southend’s vulnerable long term rough sleepers.
