Spirituality

Religious and spiritual belief and practice can help homeless and vulnerable people come to terms with a past that is often characterised by profound emotional and material loss. Faith can enhance and give structure and meaning to the present - which for many homeless people might be overwhelmed by confusion, boredom and disorder - and create a purposeful future built on hope, fellowship, and sense of purpose.

This section of the website considers the elements of religious or spiritual belief and practice that may improve the well-being of homeless people, and contribute to a personally fulfilling and meaningful future. The following pages also outline practical means by which services - both secular and faith-based - could acknowledge the spiritual needs of their service users and express their own values in the course of their day-to-day practice.

This section is largely informed by findings from Lemos&Crane's 2013 report Lost and Found: Faith and spirituality in the lives of homeless people.
