At ImpactHK we have a vision for an inclusive Hong Kong where everyone has a safe place to call home and cares for their neighbour.
Our mission is to work with people experiencing homelessness to help them settle in a safe home, restore their mental and physical wellbeing, build their self-esteem and social capital and discover their purpose.
To do this we:
1. Start with strengths
Everyone has skills and gifts to offer the community and the capacity to learn and grow. So we focus on building people’s strengths, instead of dwelling on what they lack
2. Experience vs identity
We are inclusive and believe that homelessness should be and often is a temporary experience, not an inherent part of someone’s identity. It can happen to anyone and does not define a person
3. Put clients first
We have a holistic approach that helps people make changes in all aspects of their life. We also strive to listen and learn from those with lived experience of homelessness and include them when we design services
