Mission Statement and Vision
Our mission is to house and support the homeless in Mansfield and Ashfield whoever they are, wherever they come from. Our vision is of a society where charities like HTH™, Shelter, Framework and The Beacon Project are no longer necessary.
To achieve our mission and realise our vision all our activities are underpinned by the following values:
A commitment to respond to the specific needs of our users no matter how complex. We do not shy away from difficult cases that require extra perseverance, understanding and care.
To work with each guests as an individual, supporting them to set achievable and realistic goals that will enable them to work towards a safe, sustainable and happy future.
To help our guests to realise the value of their labour and the contribution they can make to building a better society for all.
To foster and grow a community of users and volunteers built on a commitment to care, understanding and mutual respect. HTH™ are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of it’s guests, staff and volunteers.
Understand that tackling homelessness requires a grasp of complex problems and ‘wrap around’ solutions that must address the practical, emotional and social challenges that our guests face.
The mission, vision and values of HTH™ have been consolidated into the following objectives:
Housing: develop and deliver a range of innovative housing solutions including our own ‘Move on Up’ transitional accommodation.
Employment and training: to develop and build relationships with corporate partners and third sector organsisations to offer more work opportunities for our users.
Health and wellbeing: to ensure each person in our shelter receives the best possible wraparound care and support tailored to their own particular needs.
Campaigning: raise awareness and explain issues of homelessness and also to influence public policy.
Volunteering: building and supporting the local community through the creation of wide ranging and accessible volunteering opportunities.
Sustainability: ensure the future of HTH™ as an emergency outreach provision in Mansfield and Ashfield by obtaining emergency provisions for distribution.
Fundraising: raise funds to support our existing work and plans for the future.
