Help End Homelessness in the Yarra Ranges
Your donations directly change the lives of the many people we encounter each week experiencing homelessness; at-risk of homelessness; or extreme poverty in the Yarra Ranges.
Each week it’s a nutritious lunch and a listening friend to that older man who’s health is suffering and getting worse living in sub-standard living conditions in a local boarding house with others battling their own issues of drugs or alcohol.
For that struggling mother with three young children escaping domestic violence, trying to carve out a new life for herself and her children; it is regular access to food hampers, caring friends who listen and don’t judge her, and access to resources to help her and her family.
Every day it is food, clothing, and bedding to that young couple who find themselves sleeping in their station wagon.
Daily it is access to fresh toiletries, feminine products, clean clothing, clean bedding, Street Swags and people who care, listen and can ensure they are informed and resourced.
Once a fortnight, for that older woman who lives on disabilities and whose family have abandoned her; it is a nutritious two-course meal, the highlight among a fortnight of hurried meals eaten alone. For her, it is also an opportunity to eat and talk with her friends; others who live alone or in boarding houses or supported residential care.
We are largely funded through the generosity of individual donors and do not receive any government funding.
