1 in 200 people in Australia are homeless
‘Homelessness jumps more than 30% in NSW’ – SMH, March 2018
What causes homelessness?
- natural disaster
- family violence
- a shortage of affordable housing
- physical and/or mental health issues
- unemployment or job loss
- drug and alcohol abuse and addiction
- family and relationship breakdown
- feeling unsafe at home
Whatever the cause, people who are homeless need love and care, a safe place and a listening ear. Please join us in supporting these Fresh Hope initiatives as they respond.
What can I do?
We need to pray for those facing homelessness and those working to serve them.
Fresh Hope Engage partners are responding to local needs showing love, care and practical support to those facing homelessness.
Please join them by giving generously to care for people facing homelessness.
My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.
