MercyCare will be supporting the third Annual Homeless Connect Day which will be held on Wednesday 16 November 2011 at Russell Square and the Hellenic Community Centre, Parker Street, Northbridge.
The City of Perth, in partnership with Volunteering WA aims to provide a “one stop shop” of services, for one day, to homeless persons or those at risk of becoming homeless. Various community groups and businesses support the day as well as the three tiers of government.
Homeless Connect Perth is part of a national initiative that sees Australian capital cities and regional centres host Homeless Connect events. The CCCLM (Council of Capital Cities Lord Mayors) established Homeless Connect Day to provide homeless people with a stepping stone toward a life out of homelessness.
