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.

Becoming a Queen Again Book

Sunny Kids
“Becoming A Queen Again Book”

We provided seed funding for “Becoming a Queen Again”, a new book for women experiencing domestic violence, to assist them in securing a safe place to call home, and with their recovery and healing journey. Our grant enabled ‘S’ (the author and a survivor) and the Sunny Kids team, to develop and prepare the book to the point of printing.

Innari Aboriginal Housing Program

Innari
Aboriginal Housing Program

Founded as a women’s shelter in the 1980s, “Helping the mob to help themselves” is the proud motto of Innari, a small, longstanding support service in inner Sydney, with a team of only four staff. Our grant supported their housing program enabling the team to respond to the individual needs of each client to set them up for tenancy success.

HAAG LGBTI Elders Program

Housing for Aged Action Group
LGBTI Elders Program

Discrimination and structural disadvantage has created a homeless crisis for older women, but older LGBTI homelessness is a hidden issue. That’s why in Jan 2019 we helped to fund a LGBTI Elders program with H.A.A.G to connect with older LGBTI people who are struggling without support and are vulnerable to homelessness.
Total Funds provided: $7,132

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.
