Volunteers and Students from various organizations, institutions and professional bodies along with independent persons, (local and international groups) support the staff/team.


Night Shelter: [Refuge of Hope] is operated by the St. James Parish Council/ Poor Relief Department and the Open Heart Charitable Mission, located on Albion Road Montego Bay.


Because of a lack of intermediate term care facilities in Western Jamaica, fully rehabilitated ex-street persons who have no home placement in the community are given the option to use the Day Centre and Night Shelter services while attending work, and seeking independent housing solutions.
