    Parramatta Mission may look small amongst the growing cityscape, but the impact it has on the city’s most vulnerable people is huge.

    Every day, in Meals Plus, we serve over 200 meals to those most in need. These may be people experiencing homelessness, escaping family violence, or facing crisis and financial stress. Our service also offers access to showers and washing facilities, fresh food and pantry staples.

    As the city grows, so does the need. Your donation today goes directly to assisiting those who are most vulnerable.

    A recent report on homelessness services shows a 26 percent increase in demand for homelessness services over the past three years, and a 50 percent increase in people who are seeking help after they’ve become homeless rather than when they are at risk. The same report showed that four in ten people who sought help from such organisations were employed yet unable to meet climbing rental prices. *

    Rental stress and the high cost of living, along with a severe lack of public and affordable housing, have led to an increase in the number of people coming to services like Meals Plus. A large number of people attending the service need support to remain living in their home or to avoid homelessness. “Average Australian households are in housing stress. Housing stress can push people into homelessness and put pressure on the services they turn to for help,” said Everybody’s Home spokesperson Maiy Azize in response to the ANZ CoreLogic Housing Affordability Report.

    We need your help to keep our doors open and serve those most in need. Please make a donation today.
