Holy Fools Inc is an independent, grassroots, not-for-profit charity focusing on the Yarra Ranges offering Hope, unconditional Love, and Grace to individuals and families experiencing disadvantage, homelessness, addiction, mental illness and isolation.
A catalyst for social change, Holy Fools Inc seeks to form transformative relationships fostering positive change both in the lives of individuals, as well as the broader community. We are a local grassroots movement of people from every walk of life and from across the political spectrum – artists and activists, faith and business leaders, students and scientists; all coming together because something can and should be done about homelessness, extreme poverty and injustice.
Holy Fools Inc members support our work by using their political clout, resources, time, money and energy to support effective programs that spur development and are making a real, measurable difference in the fight against homelessness, poverty and injustice.
We are committed to working in partnerships and are experienced, partnering with all levels of government, corporations, philanthropic organisations and the community sector. This has included involvement in research projects and strategic advocacy on critical issues such as Homelessness.
Holy Fools’ champions and speaks for those who have no voice. This has included speaking out against injustice and seeking justice through avenues of social media, protests and direct action.
Currently, we are entirely volunteer-based, from the CEO to the workers operating our Street Angels Outreach to the homeless, or serving in our office.
Holy Fools Inc is fully accredited as an Australian Charity – our details can be verified here.
While we are not a Church, we are independent with a basis of Christian values.
We offer unconditional love and our services to anyone who needs us, regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.
