We wish you a year full of hope
During lockdown, we experienced a growing demand for services like ours.
Together with compassionate supporters like you, we aim to step closer towards our strategic goal of ending homelessness in Australia. I hope you will continue to join us in providing hope for people in need this year.
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.” – Jeremiah 17:7
What are you hoping for?
Every new year brings a sense of optimism that the future will be better than the past.
‘Hope’ can sometimes feel intangible, but the Bible offers a hope that is a “strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls”– Hebrews 6:19. We all need an anchor like this in turbulent times.
It’s my prayer that you would find hope that can transform circumstances and anchor the soul amid life’s storms.
