The Penrith Homeless Hub

Friday, 7 August 2015
The Penrith Homeless Hub will be held on Wednesday 12 August from 9am – 11am at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre.

The Hub is part of 'National Homelessness Prevention Week' which aims to raise community awareness and understanding of homelessness.

Homelessness Hubs are a partnership of organisations aiming to connect people experiencing homelessness in the Penrith area with the support they need to connect with essential services.

Council plays a lead role with community partners to coordinate the Penrith Homeless Hub which will provide assistance to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

If you or anyone you know is experiencing homelessness, sleeping rough, couch surfing or know someone who is, then why not come along or bring them along and have a free BBQ provided by Christ Mission Possible. A wide range of local services will be available - all in the one location - as well as free personal care packs, clothing, food, health information and lots more.

A collaboration of organisations have joined together to offer these services including the Department of Human Services, Housing Services, Accommodation Services, Health Services, Charities and Community Services.

People facing homelessness are among the most vulnerable, marginalised and disadvantaged in the community. Individuals and families face homelessness for a diverse range of reasons including poverty, family breakdown, domestic and family violence, mental health issues, drug and alcohol issues.
