Project of the month

ON FRONT LINE

The circumstances which lead a person to homelessness can be extremely complex. It will be part of a harrowing journey. That many of these people are exiting Government care or institutions means that we are clearly letting down vulnerable people. Many will be experiencing a mental health illness, chronic diseases like heart conditions, cancer, diabetes, drug and alcohol dependence, complex trauma and lifelong histories of abuse. Often people are dealing with these issues alone, without the support of family and friends. As a community we could and should do better. So who is left to care for people in these perilous situations on the front line of our homelessness crisis?

The Haymarket Foundation in Sydney provide a safe place for people in crisis, supporting people transitioning into long-term accommodation, and provide a range of supportive environments and as many chances as are needed to support someone on their journey to independence.

“The most fundamental challenge we face,” says Haymarket Foundation CEO Peter Valpiani, “is that the people who need care the most are the people who have least access to it.”

That’s why this month we are raising funds to support The Haymarket Foundation. Donations will be directed to support their transitional housing program helping and supporting people into a safe and secure place to call home.
