Established in 2007 and formalised in 2010, HCDStreetwise (HD) is a non-profit, incorporated charity that passionately advocates for the homeless, needy and politically underrepresented members of our global family.
HD provides emergency relief in the form of personal hygiene items, clothing, food, blankets and backpacks to those living on the streets, people fleeing domestic violence as well as women and their children in an emergency crisis.
HD is not government funded and relies on the generous donations of cash and in-kind from community members and businesses. HD runs many projects where the community can get involved to donate or attend a fundraising event such as the Fashion Parades, Quiz nights and adventure on wheels.
HD operates a boutique second-hand shop where all donations are washed prior to selling or passing on to those in need, all profits from this shop go back into the organisation to manage running costs (rent, electricity etc.) and to purchase items required our outreach programs.
HD is volunteer led and run, with a wide scope of people from business executives to those with disabilities who are passionate about helping others.
