YOUR DONATION IS A LIFELINE

Why We Need Your Support Now

Homelessness is a growing concern in Brisbane. A recent Brisbane Times report revealed a staggering 22% rise in homelessness since 2017, with families, single women, and children most at risk.

Over 300 people sleep rough on Brisbane's streets each night, facing immense challenges. These numbers are a stark reminder of the urgency.

Your support is critical in helping us bridge the gap. Every donation helps us provide vital services and support, so no one has to face homelessness alone.

Finding Strength

Paige's Journey at Sheltered by Grace

Paige's story is one of courage and resilience. After escaping a violent situation, she turned to drugs to numb the pain. But the cycle wasn't helping. Seeking help, she enrolled in a rehab program, but a setback with cigarettes led to her dismissal.

Feeling lost, Paige found a lifeline at Sheltered by Grace in December 2020. Here, she embarked on a different kind of recovery program. It wasn't just about kicking the drugs; it was about understanding herself and the triggers that fueled her addiction.

Through the Narcotics Anonymous program offered on-site, Paige began to unpack the layers of trauma. It wasn't easy. She admits to initially resisting the process, wanting a quick fix. But with time, she realised lasting change takes work. It meant taking responsibility for her choices, facing her past, and building a future for herself and her children.

Paige's journey is still unfolding, but she's no longer alone. Sheltered by Grace is providing the support and guidance she needs to heal and rebuild.

Paige's story is a powerful reminder: that we all have the strength to overcome hardship. At Sheltered by Grace, we provide the support and guidance needed to rebuild a life free from addiction and trauma.

Will you help Paige and others like her find a safe shelter and a path to recovery? You can be part of Paige's story, and stories like hers.

Your donation helps us offer a safe and secure shelter, a chance to heal, and the tools to build a brighter future. Together, we can help people like Paige find the strength to overcome their challenges and create a life free from addiction.

Donate today and empower someone to find their path to recovery.
