Women’s Community Shelters
Provide shelter to a woman
In this current COVID-19 crisis, Women's Community Shelters are experiencing a 25% increase in inquiries for safe accommodation for women and children who are homeless or escaping domestic violence. Existing services were already at full capacity, with more than 50% of women seeking shelter turned away due to a lack of beds.
Across Australia, around 56,000 women are homeless each night, many with young children. Now, there are many more. Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks.
Women’s Community Shelters is dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay and an opportunity to rebuild their lives.
The Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation
The human right to read and write
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children continue to fall through the cracks of our education system, trapping them in a cycle of vulnerability and illiteracy. This devastating gap is particularly evident in remote Indigenous communities, where the writing abilities of year 9 students are at year 1 level. If not addressed in the early years, this issue continues into adulthood.
In remote areas, up to 70% of Aboriginal adults are ‘functionally illiterate’. This is a national tragedy.
We believe literacy is freedom; to take control of your life, be informed, have a voice, stand up for your rights, resist exploitation, be self-confident and self-reliant. Literacy unlocks the door to learning and a world of endless possibilities.
The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation is transforming lives through community-driven, ground-breaking and best practice literacy programs. Working in English and Indigenous First Languages, ALNF is committed to creating sustainable, long-term change.
Support homeless youth
Celebrate the real VIPs
On any given night, over 28,000 young Australians aged 12-24 are homeless. These young people often face social and community isolation, and experience social stigmas limiting their opportunities.
Part of HoMie’s response is to host ‘VIP Days’ for young people affected by homelessness. At least 12 times a year HoMie closes its store to the public for the day, inviting young people affected by homelessness in to choose complimentary brand-new clothing of their choice, while enjoying haircuts, beauty treatments and lunch with the HoMie team.
This provides young people with a day of pampering and fun, to increase their confidence, experience community connection, a sense of belonging and acceptance as VIPs.
