In the last month we have had 19 families move to their forever homes! Thank you for the kind donations that allowed us to support them with furnishing and home starter packs to make their house feel like a home.
This morning our staff are needing to provide additional support to people in our crisis accommodation after a heart breaking incident occurred when a random act of malicious damage took place on the road where they had parked their cars. Our homeless community members face many challenges on a daily basis and rely on the one possession of value they are lucky enough to have. Many times their cars are their home when there is a shortage of crisis accommodation. We are hoping that if you have any way of contributing to helping us repair the windows of their vehicles please donate https://www.paypal.com/donate/… and use “car” in the description.
Wollongong Homeless Hub would like to thank Paul Scully MP, Member for Wollongong for his acknowledgement of Wollongong Homeless Hub in his Homeless person week parliamentary speech.
Today starts homeless person week, let’s work towards there not being a need for us to have a homeless person week campaign in the near future. You can do this by sending our treasurer a message that it makes good economic sense to increase social and affordable housing stock.

Thank you so much to everyone who has messaged through offering to donate their reusable shopping bags. We’ve had an amazing response from our beautiful community and would like to thank you all. If we could ask that if you haven’t been in contact with us and would like to donate the reusable bags if you could hold onto them until November, when we will make another call out.👏 The bags help us to make our rough sleeper and family food parcels 🙂
