As first time CEO Sleepout attendee Helen Yost braved the cool winds under the Story Bridge in Brisbane for the annual event in June 2017, she was reminded of her past and her own experiences of homelessness.



Catherine has faced challenge after challenge in her life. As a single mother who escaped domestic violence, Catherine has raised three daughters on her own, and in recent years family illness and financial hardship have left Catherine struggling to get by.



Joe was experiencing homelessness and was a heavy user of methamphetamines. He wanted to turn his life around, and sought out Vinnies to assist him with accessing detox and rehabilitation programs for his drug addiction.
