People right here in our community are skipping meals, simply because they can’t afford to eat.
Will you make sure help is available?
“With rent and my power, there’s not much left for groceries, petrol, clothing and medication. We struggle. We go without. I’ve skipped meals just to make sure my kid can eat.” – Carly
Now, more than ever, people like Carly are being forced into impossible choices. Choices between feeding their children and heating their homes, between paying rent and paying for vital medications.
They need the support of generous people like you to make sure that these essentials, don’t become ‘optional’.
Last year, over 2,000 people needed HCM’s Emergency Relief services, to help pay bills, put food on the table, and receive the financial support they need to ensure they aren’t forced into homelessness.
“I would literally be stuck because this month, if I didn’t have emergency food relief. I wouldn’t have any food in my cupboards. It’s only because this support that we can eat.”
Make a gift today to ensure no one in our community has to go without.
Your support today will help by:
Providing emergency food and financial assistance for 125 Tasmanians and their families who are reaching out for help every single day
Housing & supporting young Mums, Dads and their children who would otherwise be facing homelessness and possibly separation
Giving a home at Mountain View to 32 people who have been experiencing long-term homelessness – and providing the support they need to rebuild their live
Your support is vital to these services and many more.
Without your care and compassion, vulnerable Tasmanians could have even fewer safe places to go for help.
Please give generously to ensure that Tasmanians have the essentials they so desperately need.
