Being homeless often leads to feelings of fear anxiety, and social withdrawal. The sense of isolation that comes from not feeling part of our community can cause us to withdraw even further from activities critical to our wellbeing.
The greater human need is for friendship and uncondional acceptance during such difficult times. Our wonderful volunteers aim to do just that, fostering a socially inclusive community at our many outreaches.
Tonight, 20,000 Queenslanders are homeless. Nearly half of them are women.
Over 40% are aged 25 or under. More than 3,500 of those are kids 12 or under.
