We need you! Homelessness is increasing in our region, and it is sadly expected to get much worse before it gets better. We see the devastating effects that rough sleeping has on people's mental and physical wellbeing every day.

With your help, we can provide an adequate place where people can access amenities, resources and support:
Mackay Homelessness Drop-In Centre.


Set to open in early 2024, Mackay Homelessness Drop-In Centre will offer people experiencing homelessness:

- Meals/Soup Kitchen
- A safe and inclusive place to be
- Healthcare assistance
- Showers and toilets
- Storage lockers
- An area to nap/rest when needed
- Phone and internet access
- Phone/electronic charging facilities
- Access to support staff, case managers & services.

Ultimately, it will be a daytime home for those who do not have one.
