Strengthen Organisations

Hunter Homeless Connect

"Working with the Hunter Community Alliance on issues regarding homelessness and housing insecurity has greatly strengthened Hunter Homeless Connect's capacity to work on our mission statement: 'building an inclusive community with zero judgement'.

"Since joining the Alliance, we have partnered with other local homeless support services to advocate for local policy solutions to address the rising rates of homelessness and housing insecurity in the region; we have also strengthened our position as a leader in the field. Local council staff now regularly consult with Hunter Homeless Connect regarding both issues and potential solutions to homelessness.

"We look forward to building power with the Hunter Community Alliance in ways that continue to provide dignified help to the most vulnerable people in our communities, whilst also addressing the structural issues that contribute to homelessness." -- Nissa Phillips, Connecting the Hunter Program Coordinator with Hunter Homeless Connect
