Below is a message from two community partners that StreetSmart support through our grants program and explains how this pandemic is affecting their organisation and why this Emergency Response Fund is so vital right now.

Youth Projects“Imagine being homeless during this crisis. Services closing, people struggling to get food, a shower, laundry or see a Doctor. The demand is increasing and we refuse to close. Thanks to this funding boost from StreetSmart we can now purchase critical supplies, pay for more nurses and get more people off the streets and into safer accommodation. It’s simple, we unashamedly need two things more than ever right now – money and kindness.” Ben Vasiliou, CEO, Youth Projects.

The Haymarket Foundation“COVID-19 is going to have a disproportionately greater impact on people experiencing homelessness than the general community. Our key challenge at this time is to support people who are experiencing homelessness (in all forms) to remain as healthy as possible for as long as possible. To help with keeping people experiencing homelessness as healthy as possible, for as long as possible, organisations such as Haymarket have focused heavily on maintaining business continuity. Simply, we need ongoing access to the appropriate resources (staff, capital, and supply chain) to deliver critical services for as long as the pandemic response requires. Recently, we’ve had almost double the amount of people calling ad requesting accommodation. Supply issues are driven by our staff having to self-isolate, and the general public (quite rightly) ensuring they are safe and prepared in an environment of uncertainty.” – Peter Valpiani, CEO, The Haymarket Foundation.
