Members in the ACT raise funds for HOME at Movie Night
On 27th November 2013 Members of the Order resident in ACT hosted a Charity Film Night to raise funds to support HOME at Queanbeyan; a supportive, loving home for 19 men and women with mental illness who cannot live independently or who are at risk of homelessness.
The black tie fundraiser screened ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ and raised $1,000 for HOME which will be used to purchase outdoor equipment and furniture for residents, enabling them to spend more time outside together as a community.
HOME is 100% self funded, features 20 self-contained residential apartments and provides residents have access to 24 hour pastoral care delivered by qualified employees, volunteers, and live-in caretakers. It needs a further $160,000+ per year to cover running costs.
