Homeless Connect is a one-stop-shop for people in the Canberra community who are experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, homelessness. The event focuses on the wellbeing and protection of vulnerable people by connecting them with service providers and a supportive community.
Last year we had over 100 guests attend the event. We had over 30 stalls, from dental care to legal support to haircuts and pet food. Attendees were able to talk to local support services were given free toiletries, warm clothes and food.
