CafeSmart 09.08.19 #HelpYourHood

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.

Like all the best ideas, StreetSmart is blindingly simple. How wonderful it is to do something graceful, something simple, something kind.

DineSmart is really very clever. A no-brainer! "Dine Out - Help Out". No obligation - just an invitation at the end of the meal to give a bit extra.
