There are more than 116,000 Australians who find themselves homeless each night of the year. Just under half of these are women; a quarter are under the age of 18. Join us at the Vinnies Community Sleepout on 17 August and experience what it is like to be homeless for a night.
Why we need your support
Homelessness is a growing problem. More people than ever are turning to Vinnies for help. With your support we can continue to provide a hand up, not just a handout to assist thousands of homeless people every night.
How you can help
You can help us reach our goal of raising $50,000. Register today as a team or individual and start fundraising. All funds you raise will go towards homeless services in the Far North Queensland region.
Where: Eastern Lawn of the Lagoon at the Esplanade
When: Saturday 17th August 2019
