Help keep vulnerable people off the streets!
Since reopening there has been a noticeable increase in the number of people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness.
Our existing team of staff and volunteers were struggling to keep up with the demand, so NNC invested in a new role - a Homelessness First Response Coordinator, Gemma*.
Gemma’s primary purpose is to provide support to anyone who presents to the Centre, in person or via phone, as homeless or at immediate risk of homelessness. People who are often in extreme crisis situations.
On average she supports 2-4 people a day but due to the complexity of our clients situations it can take up to 4 hours just to find temporary accommodation for someone that night.
This critical role only has limited funding. We need your help to ensure that Gemma can continue to support those most vulnerable in our community.
