Hunter Homeless Connect is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to linking vital services such as accommodation and housing, health and wellbeing, legal and financial assistance, employment, study, and support with people who are homeless, doing it tough and at risk of homelessness.
This is delivered in an environment that maintains dignity, fosters a culture of connectedness, and encourages a sense of being a valued member of the community.
Each year since 2009 up to 1,500 guests have been welcomed at the annual Hunter Homeless Connect Day, accessing a one-stop-shop of human and community services, plus receiving free haircuts, massages, immunisations, birth certificates, bedding, phone cards, food, clothing and much more.
The Hunter Homeless Connect Day is delivered by a ‘community coalition’ of government and non-government services and volunteers, with in-kind and financial support from organisations and individuals across the Hunter, and donations through our community.
There are many ways you can get involved with Hunter Homeless Connect, through sponsorship, donations, fundraising and participating in our key events.
