Over eighteen months ago, Wayne and his three-year-old son faced the terrifying prospect of being homeless.
“I moved to Goulburn from Sydney after a relationship breakdown, and I found the rent was too high for me,” said Wayne. “I didn’t want to ask for help… I have too much pride, but I had my son to think about.”

Like Wayne, many of these people just need a helping hand to get through a traumatic life circumstance.
“Without Anglicare’s help, I don’t know where my son and I would be. He now has a yard to play in for the first time,” said Wayne. “Having somewhere where we feel safe and stable has made such a difference to our lives.”
You can give an extremely meaningful gift this Easter by supporting families at risk of homelessness.
