SCE recently partnered with Wollongong Emergency Family Housing (WEFH), a registered not-for-profit charity, provided funding for two rooms at their Keira Street premises.
“We are delighted to lend our support to those less fortunate than us in our society and look forward to a long partnership with WEFH,” explains SCE Managing Director, Michael Aubin.
WEFH supports families and individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to either sustain their existing accommodation or attain and keep new tenancies through a combination of early intervention, case management, referral, advocacy and information.
Their mission is to alleviate distress and empower vulnerable people from all backgrounds who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and support their transition from homelessness to home.
