Help us help others! We are pleased to be joining with fellow Queensland architectural practices and academies to help us continue our tradition of giving and support in our 2021 Sleepout for Homelessness campaign. This will be the 10th anniversary of the campaign. The campaign has, to date, raised over $172,000 to support women and children at risk of homelessness.
The aim of the campaign is to support women and children who are experiencing housing stress and at risk of homelessness. Whilst there is much fanfare in the media about government support, the reality on the ground is quite different. It is often the smaller things that can make a huge difference. Rental top ups, food vouchers, support for young families, and even removalists to extract possessions from the home of abusive partners can help. Our funds are supporting the work of Second Chance Programme. Second Chance is a volunteer run charity that is a clearing house supporting a wide range of programs and shelters across the state. Second Chance runs at almost zero overheads and ensures that support is directed to organisations where the impact is greatest and with the highest levels of due diligence.
