Orange Sky Laundry is the world’s first free mobile laundry service for the homeless. A grassroots volunteer lead organisation that started in Brisbane, it has now grown to service across Australia. StreetSmart was one of the very first funders of this great idea, as well as the running cost of their new shower van.
Carevan provides support to people who are homeless or at risk in and around the community of Albury Wodonga. Since 2011 StreetSmart has helped with 8 community grants totalling $7,750 to help fund their community meals and kids cooking and caring programs.
Essential 4 Women SA is a small, grassroots charity that seeks donations of sanitary items, toiletries and underwear, then create and distribute E4WSA Period Packs to women in need in South Australia. To date we have funded their donation drives and Period Packs with $4,200 grants.
