About Grace Kbh 

Grace Kbh is a place for homeless people in Copenhagen as a part of the social organization Blå Kors Danmark. In winter, emergency shelter is open every night, for the people living on the street.  

For the rest of the year we serve free breakfast and lunch every day. 

We have visitors from Southern and Eastern Europe as well as people originating in Africa who are legally residing in Denmark. These groups enjoys Grace's offer of food, tranquility, community and warmth, as they do not have access to many social cafés and shelters. 

We do what we can to help 

At Grace Kbh you can stay overnight in winter, get free coffee and food, charge your mobile, get help with translating documents, look for job and apartment, make cv and to find your way in the Danish system and more. 

There are two staff members at Grace Kbh, and about 70 volunteers help with cooking, cleaning, playing games, conversations, advice, etc. 

Use the volunteers and staff to talk about what you're struggling with. We help if we can, otherwise we refer to organizations that we cooperate with, e.g. The Homeless Unit, The Street Lawyer and Project Outside. 

Community and activities 

In addition to free food and accommodation, Grace Kbh has several opportunities for community and activities. You can help arrange what happens. For example, movie night, football tournament or cozy night on Saturday Grace. 

Check our current activities on Facebook page "Gracekbh".

Grace Kbh has a recycling container at Baggesensgade 7, 2200 København N. If you have some shoes, warm clothes or sleeping bags and etc. you are no longer using, can be donated to our guys.
