To most people, Christmas is a time for celebration. A day dedicated to eating food, drinking, giving presents and spending time with those you love. Though, not everyone gets to experience the true meaning of Christmas. Help us bring Christmas spirit to those in need by donating food, gifts or even volunteering time to help those experiencing hardship over the holidays. For gift ideas or if you wish to donate money to our Christmas appeal go to our christmas page. You can also download our A4 Poster if you wish to do a Christmas gift drive here.
Coast Shelter is celebrating our achievement of 25 years operation as a truly local charity on the Central Coast NSW, and the successes of each and every individual who we have helped in that time. Each person we met had a story to tell and we have helped many achieve their goals. It may be moving into a safe and secure home, passing the HSC, getting a new job or mending a relationship with a family member.
Captured and interviewed by the talented Central Coast NSW photographer Noel Fisher at NC Images, you will be introduced to the raw and real stories of those who were homeless, are still homeless and the volunteers who give their time. We hope their stories inspire, educate and provoke discussion around homelessness and issues facing those at risk of homelessness. Check our Facebook Page for event information.
