DOES PROJECT67 WORK WITH OTHER AGENCIES?

HOW ARE YOU FUNDED?
We do not receive statutory grants from the government or employ the services of detoxing medical experts to treat residents living in our facilities, except the normal attendance to GPs and other agencies if the residents need their support.
We are a self supporting charity relying on contributions from the wider community. We receive support from residents housing benefit and a contribution for bills and food from their other benefits.
We would not disqualify someone from being accepted if they are not financially able to contribute.
DO PEOPLE HAVE TO BE CHRISTIANS TO BE IN A VICTORY HOME?
We welcome all people who need our help to be free from addiction. However residents are informed we are a service based on Christian principles and practices and attendance at some church events is required.
