Sydney Homeless Connect

Sydney Homeless Connect is an organisation focussed on helping some of the 28,000+ people in Sydney who are being affected by homelessness.
 
Every year Sydney Homeless Connect attract over 3,000 people to Sydney Town Hall, from the greater Sydney region and extending as far as Wollongong, Newcastle and into the Blue Mountains. The day seeks to provide guests with a range of service providers who can assist them to move further along the path out of homelessness. As well as these services they provide free clothing stores.
 
The Team at Sydney Homeless Connect are a group of people who do what they do because they believe “it is good to do something good”!
 
At Kennards Self Storage  we endeavour to help great initiatives such as these. Often space restrictions can hinder and even undo the necessary work that these volunteers seek out to do, with donations being turned away due to lack of space. The donation of storage space takes that one hassle away.
 
Sydney Homeless Connect is a not-for-profit organisation fuelled by the energy, support, resources, and care of volunteers. To learn more visit Sydney Homeless Connect
