"Hidden homelessness” is an insidious and destructive problem. Whether on the streets, in their cars, couches, trains - an increasing number of people in our community are sleeping rough or are at risk of homelessness. And some are more vulnerable than others.

- More than one third of women accessing homelessness services do so because they’re fleeing family violence.

- On any given night in Australia 27,680 young people aged 12-24 years are homeless - not by choice.

- Education can break the cycle of disadvantage and provide lifelong opportunities.

Yet those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness can miss out due to poverty and financial strain, lack of stability of a permanent home and lack of support to stay in education.

These are problems that can be solved. In fact, with specialist services and support, these vulnerable members of our community can move out of a life of housing stress or homelessness - and realise a life of opportunity.

Link Housing launched Home Sweet in 2017 to address the growing issue of youth homelessness in Sydney. The fundraising sleep over event, raised $120,000 for The Burdekin Association, who provide housing, support and hope to homeless youth.

This year, we hope to raise even more to not only support youth in the area, but also women escaping domestic violence and others in the community who are at risk of homelessness.

Donate, support a "sleepee" or join community and business leaders to sleep over yourself at Freshwater Surf Club on 20th September 2019, from 6pm to raise money to help end homelessness in the Northern Beaches.
Location:
Freshwater Surf Life Saving Club
Kooloora Ave, Freshwater NSW 2096, Australia
