“I didn’t choose to be homeless. I found myself there. It was the only escape from the alcohol-fuelled violence I experienced as a child.”
Nobody chooses to be homeless. People like Jess didn’t. She fled violence. She fled fear. So she found herself alone. She found herself scared and vulnerable. She needed help.
With winter upon us, there are many more people like Jess living without the things you and I take for granted, like somewhere to sleep or knowing where our next meal is coming from.
Sadly, WestCare will have a busy winter helping the hundreds of South Australians who come to us every week for help.
You can give hope and comfort this winter to South Australians with nowhere safe to live.
Your gift can make such a difference by providing second chances.
