What we do
Throughout Denmark, DanChurchSocial has shelters providing coffee, meals, hot baths, clean clothes free of charge or very cheaply. In the shelters, we give room to people living an otherwise tough and hectic everyday life in poverty, loneliness, homelessness, psychological illness or substance abuse.
In some of the big Danish cities (Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense) DanChurchSocial have night shelters accommodating people, who have nowhere else to stay at night. This kind of accommodation is very primitive with many people sleeping on the floor in one or a few rooms.
In collaboration with the local authorities DanChurchSocial runs five hostels and re-establishment centres in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg, Odense and Randers. A hostel is a temporary – although regular compared to the shelters – accommodation for people without a home. The intention is for the residents to hopefully shift to a long-term residence.
Second Hand Stores
Throughout Denmark you find Danchurchsocial's second hand stores. The surplus from the second hand sales supports the social work.
