Will you please donate to provide relief to people in urgent need?
Your donation will help Southern Tasmanians get through the Winter.
YES! I want to make a difference.
Please accept my gift of:
- $50 gift can provide emergency relief to families in crisis.
- $100 can provide professional support, including budgeting and goal planning to get past the tough times.
- $500 gift can provide accommodation for those with nowhere else to go – like Tim and his two beautiful kids.
Your gift can give families the comfort, security, stability and strength they need to get through the hard days and long, cold nights of winter.
With the Tasmanian housing crisis getting worse, the price of rental properties has gone through the roof. And even families that can afford to rent are competing against hundreds of other applicants.
So, no matter how strong, independent or resourceful those families are, without help, many of them will still end up with nowhere to call home.
And over winter, their situation can quickly turn desperate and dangerous.
That’s why we are calling on Tasmanians like you to help those who need it most.
Will you help Tassie get through the Winter?
If you are able to show your support, every dollar can make an incredible difference during this extraordinary time.
Tim was desperate for a safe home for his two beautiful kids. But unable to work or find affordable accommodation, he was running out of options – and hope.
As a single Tasmanian dad, he had already given up everything – including his job – to care for his kids who both have complex needs.
But because of the housing crisis rentals were far too expensive, Tim quickly ran out of money, options – and hope for his family’s future.
“My daughter would come up to me and she had seen me crying, and I had my head between my
knees… I felt so depressed living in the tent… I felt hopeless.”
He desperately needed to find stable housing and school placements for his kids to get the support they needed, but didn’t know where else he could turn.
“It was horrible,” Tim recalls.
But when all hope was gone, Tim received a visit from Hobart City Mission that changed his life.
Your support provides families like Tim’s access to desperately needed services including housing, essentials, and support. And a very kind donation today will go a long way in helping Southern Tasmanians facing the challenges of the housing crisis get through the Winter.
