Ser­vice home­less

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

HOME­LESS Con­nect has been left out on the street af­ter it was ad­vised the free ware­house premises it used in 2015 will no longer be avail­able.

A part­ner­ship between Vol­un­teer­ing WA and the City of Perth, Home­less Con­nect works to de­liver a one-day, one-stop shop for peo­ple who are dis­ad­van­taged and need as­sis­tance to new path­ways and con­nec­tions.

Since its in­cep­tion nine years ago, the ser­vice has made use of free se­cure ware­house ac­com­mo­da­tion where its vol­un­teers col­lect and sort much needed do­na­tions.

It is now des­per­ately in search of a new ware­house ahead of its col­lec­tion cam­paign com­menc­ing in the next month.

Home­less Con­nect now re­quires a min­i­mum of 500sq m space with a roller door and the abil­ity for a small truck to en­ter the premise.

For ease of peo­ple drop­ping off their do­na­tions, an ideal lo­ca­tion would be within 10-15km of the CBD.

Any­body who might be able to help is asked to con­tact Mar­ija Jelavic on 0419 993 789 or at mar­ija@vol­un­teer­ingwa.org.au.
