You can change someone's life today

Being homeless is a seemingly endless series of challenges. 

Your waking hours are spent trying to keep safe, get enough to eat and find a place to be cool in the hot summer sun or warm when the cold winter wind blows. 

During the day you feel abandoned – people just walk past without a second glance.  At night, it can be so lonely – and scary.

Baptist Care’s Westcare Centre in the middle of Adelaide offers nutritious meals, hot showers and laundry facilities – and much more.  Caring professionals take time to listen and provide links to vital services. 

Your help today will make a big difference, when it really matters – and most of all, someone with nothing will know you care.  Please click on the DONATE NOW button to make your gift.

For more details of Baptist Care’s services please take a few minutes to look at our Annual Report.

If you’d like to know more, do contact us on 8273 7106 or email fundraising@baptistcaresa.org.au.

 

I’m sure you’ve noticed that all around us are the tell-tale signs that a long, cold winter is behind us. Perhaps you’re already anticipating the fresh beginnings that the new season may bring. Unfortunately, for the many people who live in poverty in this country, each season is much the same as the last.

Lila* was one of hundreds of people that come to our WestCare Centre. She was kicked out of home by her violent step-father and was living on the streets.
It was a harsh, demoralising existence for a young girl.

She came to our WestCare Centre for meals, hot showers and laundry facilities. But she found much more than that. She found our workers on the ground ready to listen without judgment, to support her, and to connect her to the right services.

Soon she had her own home and was making positive decisions for her future. “I’m so grateful for the help I got,” she says.

Today, she is a well-adjusted woman raising a family of her own.

The WestCare Centre is funded solely through the kindness and compassion of people who care for those, like Lila, who’re struggling in our community. But resources are stretched and the need remains great.

Your donation will provide food and emergency aid, but it will also help us to keep the doors open so that people can come to be safe, to rest and to access legal aid, dental care, health checks, referrals and advocacy.
