Eastworks is a program that provides support to those with the least options, such as people leaving prison, refugees, people without homes, those with mental illness, addiction or other factors that may marginalise them. Eastworks seeks to confront these socialisation issues. East stands for:
Transition to life in the community.
Companioning those with the least options allows them to experience forgiveness, acceptance and love, which can offer the best platform to recreate themselves. Peter Carroll and Anne Jordon from the Cana community started this initiative and have been such an important help and support for so many people.
