Angel Retreat Foundation’s vision is to end homelessness and domestic violence in Australia.
Angel Retreat Foundation’s mission is to build at least 11 Angel Retreat shelters throughout Australia. To provide a safe place families, individuals and couples can stay with all the essentials they need such as three meals a day, warm showers and a comfortable bed.
Homelessness in Australia to surge by 9% in 2021. An estimated 90,500 people are homeless in 2021. In 2020, 260 people were turned away from homeless services every day due to lack of accommodation.
At the height of the Covid-19 crisis 6,000 people a month were forced to seek out homeless services.
1.6 million women and 528,000 men across Australia have experienced physical violence from a current or former partner.
On average one woman is killed every 9 days and one male is killed every 29 days by their current or former partner.
880,000 families nationwide are struggling financially after paying their housing bills. Families are going without the basic necessities of food, clothes, blankets, toiletries, female hygiene products, school uniforms and supplies.
Living in Australia it is easy to take for granted essentials such as shelter, food and warm showers. But the reality is many people do not have access to these necessities they deserve.
Have you ever walked down the street and seen a homeless person lying on the bare concrete. No place to live, no warm shower, maybe two meals a week if they are lucky. This needs to end now! It is every human's right to have access to basic living necessities.
Angel Retreat Foundation also provides safe, secure accommodation for families who need to leave their homes due to domestic violence risks. We believe that if families knew they had somewhere to go they will be more likely to leave their dangerous situations. This would save so many lives.
There is also a need for homeless children and young adults who have had to escape domestic violence situations to live on the streets. These young kids deserve to have a safe place to stay with a warm bed, shower and meals. They deserve to have access to facilities to get them on the right track towards adulthood. These kids are our future. charity
