Why we need your support
Homelessness is often perceived to be a metropolitan problem. In actual fact, a significant proportion of people experiencing homelessness are in regional, rural and remote Australia. The risk of homelessness in rural and remote areas is extremely high due to a greater likelihood of low incomes, high living costs and poor housing options relative to regional and metropolitan centres. Homelessness is an issue in OUR area and we NEED your help.
How you can help
All funds raised from the Deni Community Sleepout will be donated to the St Vincent de Paul Society Deniliquin St Michael’s Conference Centre to be used in our local area. Our local conference assist people in the local region who are experiencing financial hardship. This assistance takes on many forms such as vouchers to assist with electricity bills, assistance with rental arears (in exceptional circumstances), food support and affordable clothing, footwear and household needs.
Please help us realise our goal of raising $20,000 so that we are able to continue helping those in our community who need it the most. Register as a team or an individual today and start fundraising.
