ImpactHK is a non-profit that provides the homeless in Hong Kong with food, shelter, education, employment opportunities and community. Our aim is to empower those experiencing homelessness and help them improve and rebuild their lives sustainably. We do this through a wide range of services at our centres and through street outreach. Every week, we serve more than 3,000 meals and in just three years we have helped more than 200 people into shelter.
We know that providing homes and food alone is simply not enough. We have demonstrated time and time again that a holistic approach is needed. Through our social enterprise shop 1ofaKind, we are creating job opportunities and 11 of the ImpactHK staff team have had first hand experience of homelessness. We have a range of support, from counselling and classes, which include nutrition, sports, English and Mandarin lessons and art therapy. Above all, we foster community because we know that it is connection and friendship that combats the isolation that forces people to become homeless.
