Over 25 years…

Helping Herts Homeless started out 25 years ago as ‘North Herts Sanctuary’ when a small group of church people recognised the need to address the growing problem of local homelessness. The North Herts Sanctuary on Nightingale Road in Hitchin is now operated on a daily basis by Stevenage Haven and operates on a 24/7 basis, providing accommodation for up to 17 individuals each night with extensive day services.

Helping Herts Homeless still owns the property, and as part of its wider work continues to organise the volunteer force and raise funds for the hostel.
