The Community of Camden Churches Cold Weather Shelter (C4WS)
C4WS is a church based ‘rolling shelter’ that provides emergency accommodation to street homeless, those at immediate risk of rough sleeping locally and ‘hidden homeless’.The project runs between 1 December and 31 March every year and has a capacity of 14 beds.
C4WS is a collection of different congregations from various denominations with the same heart. To reach out to the homeless of Camden and provide warmth, food, security and hope. There is a set venue for each night of the week which is manned by 20-30 volunteers per night. Through the partnerships of local churches the project has a unique ability to meet the practical needs of homeless individuals in Camden and the surrounding area without discrimination or favour.
