My Story

Please help me raise funds to address youth homelessness when I give on my warm home and security for one night on July 6th. - Thanks Steve
The homeless are a symbol of societal failure and something we should all be concerned about. They are not just the colourful characters we see regularly on the main streets. On last year’s sleepout we heard from a 16 year old girl for whom living on the street was safer than home and a well educated 65 year old man where rapid changes in his personal circumstance had him on the street for the first time in his life. They are the tip of the iceberg, beyond the homeless there are greater numbers of people that don’t have homes but live in unstable temporary accomodation. At the City Mission before Christmas I saw some of the 1000 people a day they were seeing for crisis help, the majority of whom were Maori and Pacific and mainly elderly or young kids. It was a picture that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Thank You
