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.

Over $80,000 distributed in CafeSmart community grants

Thanks to our amazing network of CafeSmart 2020 venues, and their generous customers, we have distributed more than $80,000 in community grants! We fast-tracked these funds to 87 community partners just before Christmas. That means a positive impact for vulnerable people, across the country, when they needed it most. Practical and vital aid was delivered through school supplies for disadvantaged children, driving lessons for vulnerable women, medical equipment for street teams and much more.

Total Funds Provided $80,150

SmartCare – Supporting Frontline Workers

Frontline workers have done an amazing job caring for some of our most vulnerable and marginalised people through the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s crucial that workers have good support for their mental and physical well-being. Through SmartCare we are funding important support programs including mental health first aid courses, counseling, self-care initiatives, care packs, and team building sessions.

Total Funds Provided: $47,000
