The spiralling cost of living and the housing crisis mean families are facing hunger, cold and the real risk of homelessness this winter. Huge numbers of people are coming to Hobart City Mission for help, and we need the urgent support of our community.

Your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar before 30 June.

Give safety, warmth and support for families doing it tough.

This winter, families in Southern Tasmania are facing unbearable choices.

Choices between feeding their children, heating their home or paying the rent. Going cold, going hungry… or facing homelessness.

When young mum Mandy made the brave decision to flee her violent relationship, she had nowhere to go. And no money. Unable to afford food, let alone a place to stay, she was in despair when she first came to Hobart City Mission.

Thanks to the kindness of supporters like you, Mandy and her daughter Jemma were able to find the emergency refuge, safety and warmth they so desperately needed.

This winter more women like Mandy will face the same dilemma. Do they stay in unsafe situations or do they risk becoming homeless and facing a cold winter on the streets? Please will you give so they can keep their children safe and supported?

Your generous gift today will help to provide emergency relief for families in danger like Mandy’s. Your kindness will help families just doing their best to make it day to day, facing the real risk of homelessness.

Please donate now so Hobart City Mission can continue to be a beacon of hope for Southern Tasmanians in need.

Your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar before 30 June.
