We rise by lifting others
Today is International Volunteer Day, which makes it the perfect opportunity to say THANK YOU to the dedicated volunteers who are at the heart of Hutt St Centre.
Our volunteers are a breath of fresh air. We wouldn’t be able to achieve what we do without their enthusiasm and commitment.
And while 2021 has thrown many challenges our way, our volunteers have remained dedicated and adaptable through it all. With their support, we haven’t stopped our services or missed a single meal throughout the pandemic.
Around 60% of our volunteers share their time and skills on a regular basis to support people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
Over the past year, 296 volunteers have provided support across 8 different areas at Hutt St Centre, including our reception, kitchen and dining room, laundry, Creative Hub, Pathways and Lifestyle groups, and engaging with our valued supporters.
Thanks to their kindness, together we’ve assisted 2,688 people to rebuild their lives, rediscover their identity, and reconnect with those who love them. That's the life-changing difference made by volunteers.
