Help people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless get back on their feet.

They’re sometimes called the ‘hidden homeless’. While popular perceptions conjure up images of men ‘sleeping rough’, a far larger number of homeless Australians are families, frequently with young children. There is an urgent need to address their desperate situation and to prevent the children falling into a cycle of homelessness that can plague them all their lives. Domestic violence and relationship breakdown are the major triggers for family homelessness but once a family leaves their home, they often do not know where to turn to for help. Wesley Mission calls for a fresh approach to meet the changing demographic of Sydney’s homeless community.
