Homelessness is a growing concern for all age groups. Whether it is males, females, families, youth or people from different cultures. When you don’t have a roof over your head, all aspects of life suffer, including health, well-being, job prospects, self-esteem and self-worth. Homelessness has reached epidemic proportions in South-East Queensland.
THE HOPE CENTRE – is an integral part of this and is an essential service.
The Hope Centre
The Hope Centre is an initiative of Family and Kids-Care Foundation Inc, is an emergency (crisis) accommodation and has nineteen (19) self-contained units. The Hope Centre was purposely built with versatility to accommodate individuals and small families who are homeless.
The Hope Centre is part of a restoration and recovery program and provides help and support by looking for long term sustainable housing. Education in the form of Life Skills will be taught to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.
The Hope Centre was established and financially supported by the federal government, the Walter Campbell Trust, Family and Kids Care Foundation and the ongoing support of Queensland businesses.
