The Cardinal Hume Centre

The Cardinal Hume Centre enables people to gain the skills they need to overcome poverty and homelessness. We work with homeless young people, badly housed families and others in need. Each year the Centre welcomes more than 1,700 people. The staff work with respect, integrity and compassion to help each person find a home, become financially stable and, quite simply, have a better life. The Centre’s staff and supporters are motivated by the words of Cardinal Hume, “Each person matters; no human life is redundant”. We believe everyone deserves the chance to turn their life around. After you have taken care of your family and friends, a gift to the Cardinal Hume Centre, however small, would help those who do not have a family to look out for them. Those who rely on people they do not know – people like you – to care about them. By making a commitment to the Centre, you are ensuring that we will always be here to enrich and mend the lives of vulnerable young people and those in poverty.
