SHORT TERM EMERGENCY RELIEF FOR LONG TERM CHANGE

We recognise it is nearly impossible to look for a job or a house, when you are hungry, cold and on the streets. So we aim to meet our guests immediate needs of food, clothing and shelter, and this frees them up to be able to focus on getting healthy, finding a job, house and re-connecting with their family.

Hot Meals

Every week we provide a delicious hot meal and dessert for over 125 people in need in our city. During this meal we provide hot showers, washing of clothes, haircuts and we give out veggies, fruit and bread – all for free!

Food Hampers

Every Friday we give away around 70 emergency food hampers to homeless and struggling families for free, feeding over 210 people. Each hamper is full of vegetables and fruit, frozen meals, meat, bread and pantry staples that provide enough food for a family for around 3-4 days.

Clothing & Shelter

There are approximately 80-130 people sleeping rough in Rockingham and Kwinana at any given time. Every Friday our guests can choose up to five items of clothing, shoes, tents, sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, toiletries and homeless packs to ensure they stay dry and warm while we link them to securing better accomodation.
