There is no particular way to define who is homeless as it involves men, women and children who, for diverse reasons, experience homelessness.
Local organisations are coming together next month for National Homeless Person’s Week, from Monday 4 August to Sunday 11 August. This week-long campaign raises awareness of homelessness in Toowoomba and provides practical opportunities for people to do something about homelessness in our community.
One of the organisations involved this year is local emergency relief charity, The LifeHouse. The LifeHouse offer free resources including food vouchers, fresh food parcels, household items and clothing all delivered free to families doorsteps.
The LifeHouse will be open on Sunday 11 August from 1pm to 3pm at 57 Brook Street (The old milk factory). So have a ‘spring clean for Homelessness’ and drop your donations of household items, furniture and clothing down to The LifeHouse.
All your donations will be delivered free of charge to those that need it most.
The LifeHouse live by 1 Corinthians 13:13, ‘now these three remain; Faith, hope and love but the greatest of these is Love.’
