Your pledge will impact lives.
What can you do to help homelessness?
Homelessness is a nationwide epidemic that we can help beat.
Take the #SHCiPledge and commit to helping us end homelessness.
Let go of preconceptions, judgments and bias. The next time you pass a homeless person, greet them with a smile and connect.
If you know how, offer to teach a weekly workshop and share your knowledge.
Donate used clothing
Go through your closet and donate gently worn clothes
Hire homeless people at your company. If you’re not in a position to hire, ask your Human Resource manager whether there might be internship opportunities available.
Mentoring can provide valuable motivation and support. Having a positive role model can be very beneficial to a person’s social development, confidence and self-esteem.
Spend time at your local homeless shelter or community kitchen. Volunteer at times other than holidays: early mornings, evenings, weekends or downtimes.
Organise a drive
Collect toiletries, socks, diapers/wipes, non-perishable food items and donate them to a local shelter.
Find a shelter that needs financial help to meet utility or food costs and commit to a set amount every month. If not money, contribute a bulk food item instead.

More than 105, 237 people are homeless in Australia in 2016
Countless people around Australia are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. They are unaware of the services and support that are available to them. They should not be deprived of basic necessities like food, shelter, clothes and care. Still more will find themselves on the street and uncertain of where to go next or who to trust for help.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Sydney Homeless Connect stands for all people experiencing homelessness, in all situations, all of the time. And we need you to stand with us until, together; we have eliminated this global epidemic. Take the pledge and be part of the solution to solve homelessness.
