Supporter Stories

Making a Difference is Easy!

Without the support of our generous donors, we could not continue to support young people at risk of homelessness.  Support comes in many forms and sizes, every donation no matter the size helps to make a difference.  Here are just some of the stories from people who have shown their support of the work that we do by making a donation, some cash donations, some by donating a car, and some who have organised their own fundraising event to raise awareness of youth homelessness and the work that we do and money to ensure we can continue that work.
