St Vincent de Paul Society

Canberra

One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference

Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness. But it doesn't have to be that way. This year our team is taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need. For one night, all of us will be sleeping outside as part of an eye-opening experience to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness.

To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, we need your support. Will you help us reach our target? Donating 50 dollars can make a huge difference to people who need it most.

So far this year we helped provide

139

Individual support programs

365

Beds

1463

Meals

Thank you to our Sponsors

An important experience to truly empathise with the homeless experience Stuart. Hard to imagine what it would be like to do this with young children.
