Homelessness Week: Get Someone Off The Street

You're warm and safe tonight, but not everyone is 'Home, Safe Home'.

At the basic level a home is simply a shelter, it’s somewhere to store your possessions, it’s somewhere to cook a meal, a place to sleep.
But a home is more than just four walls and a roof, a home provides safety and security, that most of us take for granted every single day.

It’s time for us to end homelessness, not just manage it.
As part of Homelessness Week 2019, we need your help to get people experiencing homelessness off the streets today.


The first thing a person needs to be engaged in society is a home.
‘Housing First’ is a proven approach to ending homelessness and all it takes to support one person getting off the street and into a rental home is $4,500.

Every $4,500 gets someone into a home. Every contribution is deeply appreciated and go towards RUAH's '50 Lives, 50 Homes' program, which will get someone experiencing homelessness off the streets and into a home where they can access wraparound services to enable them to build a safe and secure future.

This year let’s actually end homelessness for someone, let’s see how many people we can get off the streets this winter.
