Homeless Action Resource Project

What it does
    HARP's mission is to end homelessness in Southend. We provide a range of emergency and longer term supported housing alongside training, support and motivational activities. Through our advocacy and advice we prevent homelessness for those at risk of becoming so, and we address the root causes for those who are already homeless, thereby helping local people overcome homelessness for good.
