About Manna House Hanley, a Homeless Drop-In

Manna House is a drop-in for the homeless and vulnerable within Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding area and is based at the Baptist Church in Hanley.

In March 2005 a small group of volunteers got together to turn our Christian principles into action, and set our values on Matthew 25:

We began serving a hot meal every Thursday night and it soon became apparent that the needs of our 'street dweller' visitors were greater than we first thought. We began to offer clean, dry clothing, toiletries and a lunch bag for the following day. We received funding for a shower and an anonymous donor gave us sleeping bags and blankets to also pass on. We registered as a charity and extended our service provision to include a morning breakfast each week called Tea 'n' Toast.

The needs of our guests are getting greater and the number has increased and now exceeds 100 every week. We provide a safe place to eat and talk, and are able to signpost our guests to other support agencies within the city.

The whole service provision of Manna House continues to be maintained by faithful volunteers. Everything that's donated to us is freely passed on, and the one thing we've learned is that "we can never out give our God".
