From everyone at The Hub, a huge thank you to ‘Lower East Cafe’ in Wollongong for providing freshly cooked meals – they are amazing and fresh 🙂 Thank you also to ‘Just La Marzocco’ (https://www.facebook.com/LaMarzoccoAustralia/) and to everyone who supports ‘Street Smart’.
“This is a plea to the community to ask them to help the Homeless Hub in identifying people in need, so we can ultimately administer support to them,” The Illawarra Grammar School year 12 student Sam Aubin said.
Hi there, we are organising from this week donation pick up twice per week. We are are especially after non-perishable food and packaged toilet paper for our Connection packs for distribution by our assertive outreach team to homeless and those at risk of homelessness. We are asking the Illawarra Community that would like to be involved to please donate one item or as much as you can.
All you have to do is send a private message through our Facebook page or email email@example.com with the following:
Your name, address and instructions on where to find your donation (to reduce contact, hide it out of sight in front of your house away from pets) all personal details will be confidential.
What we know as a certainty is that we are open, and preparing to support more Clients in the coming months.
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we have already:
– Started completing phone assessments and offsite client safety checks as a part of Client welfare monitoring.
– Our Clients are being armed with questions and COVID-19 updates so that they can ask as a precautionary “check in” before receiving visits.
– Our Team are being up-skilled further in identifying risks and calling them out.
Keep updated on our service hours and new outreach program “point of connection” coming soon.
We would like to thank Alex and team from Sublime Point Cafe for coming on board and cooking meals for those sleeping rough and in crisis accommodation within our community. Also thank you to OzHarvest for providing fresh produce, as well as the community for your ongoing support especially during this time.
We would like to thank the kind donors who over the past 2 days have assisted us by providing individually wrapped toilet paper rolls for homeless clients and essentials to keep themselves and others as safe as possible in this time of uncertainty. We have currently had to ration the food and items we would normally be able to provide and prioritising those sleeping rough and in crisis accommodation. We normally operate on a 60-80 % food and financial donation basis to deliver the vital community service, however due to current circumstances we have only received approx. 5% of regular donations.
So a very BIG THANK YOU to the lovely families that have thought about our most vulnerable community members at this difficult time.
• Current service changes to protect staff, tenants and community have been implemented.
• Please ring prior to dropping donations so we can be aware you are coming.
• Home visits have been suspended and clients re being contacted via phone support for the immediate future.
• Drop in service is only seeing clients 1 at a time to follow the social distancing guidelines.
• If in doubt of whether we can help you please call ahead and we will advise.
• We are working closely with department of health and housing to provide a safe and healthy environment for all.
Please see the following health links for information on how you can help stop the spread of Corona virus.
Thank you for your support at this time General Manager Mandy Booker and WEFH Team.
