Our Work

Kevin's Story - How CHESS helped me
Humans of Chelmsford:
Fighting back after seven years of homelessness

Please listen to KJ’s story and how Chess Homeless has helped him. We can only continue to do this with the support of the community. If you are in a position to donate even a small amount it means a great deal to us, as we are a small charity. All funds will go towards supporting the many homeless single adults we help. Or why not support us through your work.
