Pay it Forward
Help us make an impact
By Paying it Forward through our Connecting the Hunter program, you will be providing someone in need, with a voucher to access goods and services from local businesses. You’ll also be supporting local businesses at the same time.
Many in the community want to help people experiencing homelessness, but don’t know how to reach out. People experiencing homelessness can feel embarrassed and ashamed to ask for food or basic services.
Connecting the Hunter program provides an opportunity for small businesses, corporate organisations and individuals in the community to be active participants in responding to homelessness in the Newcastle and Hunter region.
Our program is an extension of the successful Hunter Homeless Connect Day event and provides a dignified and practical way for businesses in the community to offer goods and services to people experiencing homelessness, all year round. It also provides opportunities for corporate organisations to support these businesses, and to help us raise awareness on the real issues around homelessness, reduce the stigma and break down the barriers.
