The charity work we do

Our focus is about creating awareness and providing daily essentials, such as food, clothing, and sleeping gear for those who require care, warmth, and nourishment. We operate around the Perth area and assist homeless and challenged families to deal with their present circumstance.  By doing so, Help the Homeless Believe charity is reactive on a day to day basis by seeking out those in hardship and delivering much needed supplies. Without our intervention many would go cold and experience hunger with children being largely affected. With your help we can continue our work and provide relief to those who need it.

POVERTY IN AUSTRALIA

We can do better

While poverty rates vary, 1 in every 8 Australian adults live below the poverty line. What is more concerning is that 1 in every 6 Australian children experience poverty with numbers predicted to increase. The degree of hardship can range from mild to absolute with an over proportionate amount of individuals and families suffering severely.

Stereotyping
A common misconception is that the homeless are drug addicts or individuals who do not want to work. This is far from the truth with the majority of those living in poverty spanning the elderly to those who are socially disadvantaged. Disadvantage may be attributed but not limited to generational poverty, redundancy, age and race discrimination when job or home seeking, lack of qualification, emotional or financial turmoil. Many are unsupported with no one to turn to. Without knowing an individual's circumstances making generalisations will not help our community address this growing social issue.
