Homelessness Week 2018

Homelessness Week is an annual week coordinated by Homelessness Australia to raise awareness of people experiencing homelessness, the issues they face and the action needed to achieve enduring solutions.

In 2018, Homelessness Week is the 6-12 August with a theme “Ending homelessness together’’.

In keeping with this theme, in 2018 Homelessness Australia is encouraging the community to get active as citizens to call on political leaders to make the changes needed to end homelessness.

You’ll Never Walk Alone

 

Location: Broome Male Oval, Hamersley St to Drop In Centre, 30 Dora St.

 

Email: housingsupport@byfh.org.au

 

Join us on Thursday 9th August for a 2.2 km walk from Broome Male Oval to the Broome Youth and Families Hub’s Drop In Centre.

 

Broome Youth and Families Hub is a Not-for-Profit organisation providing both case management and program support to children, young people and families in Broome. The organisation’s aim is to build capacity by empowering children, young people and families to reach their full potential.

Broome Youth and Families Hub endeavours to raise awareness during homelessness week through the “You’ll never walk alone” walk.  The idea behind the event is based on the fact that more than 116,000 homeless Australians have to wake up every day and walk to find something to eat, a shower or the next place to sleep.

 

With this walk Broome Youth and Families Hub intends to highlight, to the Broome Community, that homelessness is an important issue and that no person should feel like they are walking alone.
