Why we do what we do
People matter. Practical, dignified support makes a difference. Lives enhanced are lives to be cherished. It’s our starting point. We know we make a difference when we see hopes realised, people empowered, and communities sticking up for those doing it the hardest.
It’s also why we are the largest provider of homelessness services in Australia and why we advocate to governments on behalf of our clients, to encourage them to help Australia work towards a more equitable reality. It’s why we help keep the fridge running, the phone connected and the lights shining.
People matter. Practical, dignified support makes a difference. Lives enhanced are lives to be cherished. Those words remain true and relevant. They are backed up by The Salvation Army’s actions.
