Some of the people we have helped
Our Backyard is a place to connect and start the journey out of homelessness.
Guests can stay up to 30 nights and they receive wrap around supports along the way. We work with other local service providers, women's and men's refuges, nsw housing, community services and non government agencies for assistance.
Anyone can contact LINK 2 HOME on 1800 152 152 to see if they are eligible for crisis accommodation.
Typically many have been unable to afford the cost of paying rent, utilities and bills whilst on limited income. We provide our guests access to a financial counselor too.
A large proportion of those using our services are older Australians on a Newstart Allowance of around $254 per week.
Your generous support continues to make a difference in the lives of people like the ones listed below
