The Homeless Warriors team provide essential supplies, kindness and compassion at ground level in an effort to improve the lives of our rough sleeper friends on the streets.
Follow our journey towards much larger goals and aspirations in the future. We believe that we have to work together with our Community and team up many other local services, organisations, homeless projects and current groups to have the best chance for lasting change and really make a difference.
It's important to us to support not only the homeless but anyone struggling or vulnerable with housing or mental health difficulties, signposting to local agencies that can provide them support that they need.
We promote inclusivity in the community for all beliefs/religions/race/sexual orientation and welcome with open arms.
Stephen Russell founded Homeless Warriors at the start of 2018, now we have 3 directors and volunteers. We are looking forward to beginning new projects now that we have become a Community Interest Company.
Currently Homeless Warriors visit the homeless within Watford town centre, to supply them with clothes, shoes, toiletries, water and many other items to make their time on the streets as comfortable as it can be. Steve has quite a following on the Homeless Warriors in Watford facebook page. He has drummed up an amazing amount of support and all goods delivered come from donations from the local community. He won the Heart Community Hero Award after delivering over 1000 bottles of water over the summer months.
Stephen and Ruth have spent time getting to know those on the streets over the last year, to build friendships and gain their trust. Although the supplies help the most important thing is that they appreciate someone taking the time to talk to them and actually notice and care.
Its important to us to safeguard and respect privacy for those that are vulnerable, we won't be posting images or disclosing locations on this website.
Would you like to know more about what we're doing? If you're passionate about making a difference, let us know!

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
