Welcome to Keystone
Winchester Churches Housing Group 'Keystone' is an organisation which operates in the city, offering bedsit accommodation to single homeless people. Residents are supported and encouraged to find work if appropriate, and perhaps to change elements of their lifestyles. The project is seen as a stepping stone back into the community.
Keystone has become a reputable and solid ongoing charity from those first days of the Winchester Churches Keystone Project, in 1989.
On these web pages you can discover exactly what Keystone is about – real practical supportive care for the homeless. Winchester has many homeless people who are struggling to get out of poverty. Keystone aims to make a difference for some of them. Accommodation and support that would be beyond the hope of many, is offered as an opportunity to step back into society.
You will find that the Keystone organisation has grown significantly since it began. The structure of Keystone is run in full business fashion and is fully accountable. Prudent finance management is operated on the guidance of advisers. Yet the backbone of Keystone is the support that comes from the Winchester Churches and by many individual volunteers and members.
Anyone with a concern for the poor and homeless may contribute a donation or volunteer help to the work of Keystone. Whether you are a church, club, society or organisation, or an individual, you can become a member and part of Keystone.
Should you or someone you know wish to apply for accommodation, you will find information for an initial contact mentioned here.
