Summary of activities

We provided crisis accommodation, swags, street kits, GP appointments, support, referrals and meals to people who were experiencing homelessness. We provided free case management to get people who were sleeping rough into temporary accommodation. We employed over 20 people who were experiencing homelessness in our non-profit cafe, and provided them with paid work, upskilling/training and support. We ran an employee share house for employees who we could not assist into permanent accommodation.
