Helping the homeless get through a heat wave

Last summer was especially hot. In fact Sydney sweltered through some of its hottest days in many years. It’s uncomfortable for us, but imagine how tough it was for the homeless. Thankfully your support enabled us to keep them hydrated with cool drinks and nourished with healthy meals. We were also able to give them showers to wash away the heat of the day and help restore their dignity.  ...

Our volunteers make a world of difference

Our volunteers are special people. Every day more than forty of them generously give their time to help others. In fact we couldn’t achieve the miracles we do without them!

This Easter our volunteers will be here too with Easter eggs and hot cross buns for our needy guests. “The spirit of our volunteers truly inspires me”, said...

Crews. “The impact on their lives is dramatic. Their health improves and many of them even get regular jobs.” Finding homes for...
