    Parramatta

    Sunday 4th Aug 2019 - Friday 9th Aug 2019

    Homelessness Week is an annual week coordinated by Homelessness Australia to raise awareness of people experiencing homelessness, the issues they face and the action needed to achieve enduring solutions. Homelessness Week came about from various churches and missions running winter vigils to remember people who had died on the streets. These vigils were normally held in August as it is the coldest time of the year and when most people were likely to be overcome by the elements.

    Homelessness Week activities in Parramatta bring together a number of church, welfare, government, motorcycle and other community groups who organise events that encourage a positive appreciation of the issues and needs of those who are homeless in the Parramatta Region.
