BCHA is celebrating 40 years of supporting vulnerable people. For the people we help, our big ‘four O’ means help off the streets, out of abuse, over skills barriers and on to independence. Our work helps homeless, vulnerable and other people access the right housing, health learning and work opportunities. The many services we operate include refuges for women, children and men fleeing domestic abuse, St Paul’s hostel and day care centre for homeless people, and our Learning Services centre. Here people can gain the skills they need to prepare them for employment or their next step in making life the meaningful for them.
