Rebeccas Community is a community group whose
staff and volunteers work with people who experience homelessness in Sydney, Australia.
of the most famous homeless people (internationally), is 'The Homeless Guy,' as
he calls himself. Kevin lives in Nashville and recently had this to say (on his
website) about homelessness:
only thing that motivates a homeless person to leave homelessness is a renewed
belief that he/she is truly welcomed by society, and that a real place of significance
and dignity awaits them once they leave homelessness.
I must tell you, these things only come by way of real community - people honestly
and sincerely involving themselves in the life of the homeless person, not just
for the journey out of homelessness, but also for the life of the homeless person
long after they've left homelessness.
you are not willing to be a homeless person's friend, then who will? Where does
a homeless person belong? With you? If not, then where?"
agree. Our approach is one of journeying with homeless people as friends, now
and as far into their future as is possible. The relationship is the outcome.
programs include: Hospitality
Retreats and Schoolies
Week Support Service.
