Our Guest Speaker Anthony McEvoy is from the Salvation Army team in Melbourne and manages their “24/7 Melbourne’s Road Home Project”. The program commenced in September 2009 after the Federal Government’s white paper on Homelessness. The program provides high quality, effective, and responsive services to address each individual’s homelessness situation. Anthony told us about the current crisis in this area and the proactive measures being taken to help those in need. The Road Home project is made up of a 24/7 Community Response Team capable of providing both a mobile and centre based response to homeless crisis situations in the CBD and surrounding suburbs. The service provides support for homeless people with one on one support to meet a person’s particular needs and Anthony gave us an insight into a few case studies that he was handling. The team in Melbourne of 10 handles a case load of around 100 homeless people and works with other Melbourne based services including Melbourne City Mission and the St Kilda Crisis centre. The success of the Road Home project is linked to the level of support available from the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation and Salvation Army Project 164 and the community as a whole working together to assist those experiencing homelessness.
Once again the generosity of ANZROC members was to the fore with donations totalling $4,779.35 handed to Anthony and Evan for their ongoing work within the Salvation Army.
MATTERS OF INTEREST
LUNCH AT NEW ANZ CENTRE 833 COLLINS STREET ON 9TH SEPTEMBER 2010
Our September evening meeting this year will be a luncheon on Thursday September 9th to visit the ANZ Centre at 833 Collins Street We have booked a function room overlooking the river but due to the restrictions imposed of room size and the necessity to run a sit down sandwich lunch the function is now fully booked and I will be sending out the acceptances to those that expressed their interest in attending and will collect the $15.00 contribution in July/August. I will also create a waiting list for cancellations in case those already listed find they cannot make the luncheon so members can let me know if they want to be added to the waiting list.
In view of the interest shown by members however we will organise another visit to 833 Collins Street for the first half of 2011.
