The Foundation will assist families and youth who are homeless, or at risk of being homeless, by funding crisis accommodation.
We will work with existing services to increase their crisis accommodation capacity.
We will also provide direct funding through community based organisations in the region to enable them to provide immediate emergency accommodation for the homeless.
The Foundation will, on a case by case basis, provide funds for crisis relief to help families and individuals overcome their immediate hardships.
There are limited funds available to assist those without sufficient money to pay for the basics of life including food, rent, electricity, etc. There are many families and individuals who are so severely financially disadvantaged that the existing funds do little to improve their quality of life.
The Foundation will also provide funds through community based organisations to enable them to access counselling and case management services on an urgent basis if required.
People in crisis often have significant trauma. While government funded counselling and case management services are available they have extended waiting times.
The Foundation will also support counselling services to assist clients to better manage their finances.
