Sydney Homeless Connect is the link for Sydney’s homeless community to access the services and care they need in one location, on one day. For the fourth year, Sydney Town Hall is the iconic venue to host the event that caters to more than 2000 people who don’t have anywhere to call home.
The not-for-profit organization relies solely on donated services and goods to support and provide guidance to those in need. Sydney Homeless Connect is able to connect people who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, with the service providers who can assist them. Additionally, the organization connects the sick and vulnerable with medical and personal care they may not otherwise be able to access easily.
The Animal Welfare League has been involved with Sydney Homeless Connect for the past few years. “In many circumstances, pets are a highly valued companion for people alone on the streets. Sydney Homeless Connect is a crucial program helping not only homeless people but also their pets,” stated Animal Welfare League NSW.
On 4 June 2013, Sydney Homeless Connect will once again connect those in need with the services they need in a safe, but sensitive environment. Volunteers and those in need are welcome to join Sydney Homeless Connect.
