About the Campaign
An alarming statistic of 50,000 homeless young people in Australia caught the attention of Aspect Legal’s Managing Director, Joanna Oakey, which is why she is participating in the ‘Chatswood Sleeps Rough’ campaign to help raise $3,000 for the Salvation Army and Streetwork.
“I have a big goal by sleeping rough for one night and my goal is to raise $3,000 which will help provide one-on-one mentoring sessions for homeless youth so they can access much-needed services and support to ensure they are not sleeping rough any longer, and to help to provide accommodation, food and on-going casework for families in need.” – Joanna Oakey
All funds raised go to straight to StreetWork and Salvation Army to support them in their projects, and in particular, to get people off the street. StreetWork is a non-denominational, for-purpose, community organisation working with ‘at risk’ young people affected by crime, mental health issues, violence, destructive relationships, social isolation, homelessness, those disengaged from school or with poor employment opportunities and those impacted by alcohol and substance abuse, to turn their lives around. The Salvation Army Australia is an international movement, giving hope where it’s needed most. Across Australia – in cities, country towns and rural communities – their work touches every demographic and age group. They are involved in national issues while also bringing hope to people who may be experiencing hardship or injustice.
We would absolutely love you to join us and come along and set up your own campaign to sleep rough with us in Chatswood. But if you can’t do that, then we would absolutely love it if you could, and would be so grateful if you can donate to our campaign. To donate, just click the donate button above.
For all donors, we will keep you up-to-date with lots of pictures of Joanna is sleeping out!
