Giving back

Meals in Dining RoomWe rely on the generous support of the South Australian community to help people rebuild their lives – and there are few supporters more passionate than our volunteers.

Our volunteers come from different walks of life, but together share the same heart for making a difference.

From helping regularly in our kitchen, laundry and locker facilities to supporting our employment and education programs, volunteers are integral to the amazing outcomes we see every day.

“Volunteering at Hutt St Centre is about treating people with dignity and respect – sharing a smile with everyone, and making sure they feel welcome.

“People experiencing homelessness often feel invisible, but they’re not invisible here. We see them, and we’re here to help them.”

– Annette, Kitchen Volunteer
