Project Of The Month — September 2017

Barwon and South West Homelessness Network “Now I am Ready”

26,238 Australians aged 12-24 are homeless on any given night. These young people are more likely to leave school, experience long term unemployment, and are more likely to experience persistent homelessness in adulthood.

We think instead of being left out in the cold, Australia’s young people deserve a leg-up.

That’s why this month we are SEED-FUNDING an innovative project in the Geelong and Barwon Region. This September, StreetFunders are supporting a coalition of specialist youth homeless services to set up the “Now I am Ready” fund, enabling services to meet the cost of work and education. That’s a TAFE course, a new uniform, or a semester of prescribed textbooks. Right now services lack the funds for these essentials, and that’s where you come in….

Giving Back to Your Community

Make your work culture one your employees can get behind. Workplace giving demonstrates that your organisation has genuine commitment to the community, and makes your employees feel that it is a better place to work.

Contact Adam & Sharna to chat about how we can develop a workplace giving program that fits your organisation or choose StreetSmart on the ‘Good to Give’ platform.

“Our business has been supporting StreetSmart through workplace giving since 2015. Each month our team helps fund a new project and we get immediate feedback on how the money has been spent. We are really proud to be a part of such an important initiative, and our staff are too”   Justine Butler, ASIC in the Community Manager

This wall art at the 139 Club in Brisbane is a memorial for all those people who have lost their lives living on the street, funded by a small community grant from StreetSmart Australia.
