Wycombe Homeless Connection (WHC) is an award-winning registered charity serving around 500 homeless or vulnerably housed adults each year. It is a community project of Wycombe churches, but serves anyone who comes for help, and does not promote religion. We believe that every individual has worth and should have the chance of a fresh start, no matter what their situation.
