We believe everyone should have a safe and secure place to call home
It is a basic human right
Ending homelessness will take a whole of community response
Through innovative campaigns we enable and empower communities
to raise vital funds and awareness
to bring about change for people experiencing homelessness or at risk.
We keep it grassroots, we keep it local
We seek out, support and partner with small organisations and projects, in the communities where funds are raised.
Recently Funded Projects
$11,700 to recognise, reward, and build capacity of frontline staff
The latest round of 9 SmartCare grants are going a long way to help frontline organisations care for their staff by helping provide wellbeing support, reward and recognition, and increased training. With decreasing funding, increasing workloads and high levels of stress across the sector, it is vital that we continue to invest in the wellbeing of staff who are on the frontline of service provision.

‘Housing First’ funded through Making-a-Home
$56,000 worth of recent grants are providing flexible brokerage to nine ‘Zero’ programs, working to end street homelessness through ‘Housing First’. These local collaborations are working together to identify and house our most vulnerable rough sleepers. Our incredible EOFY donors have enabled us to help support people when they gain housing, ensuring that their new home is sustainable and comfortable.
$55,000 for SmartMeals, securing jobs and fighting hunger
Our most recent round of SmartMeals grants saw a total of $55,000 distributed to 11 food based social enterprises. This was made possible by our incredible EOFY donors and supporters and will mean a further 20,625 nutritious and culturally appropriate meals will be given to people living on the margins. These grants have also provided employment security and training opportunities for disadvantaged workers.
