Homelessness is a blight on our civilised and prosperous society.  There are over 9,000 people homeless in WA every night, and the number continues to grow.  Rotary is well equipped to address the problem and indeed many Clubs have been and are working on homelessness projects.

The Homeless Hub was set up by District 9455 to help make the most of Rotary’s efforts.  Its function is to enable and support Club projects, co-ordinate Rotary’s efforts, and offer strategic direction.  It also provides a central source of information on homelessness, does presentations to Clubs, and keeps Rotary connected to the wider Homelessness world.

The Hub is chaired by Ken Mullin (Heirisson) on ken.mullin@iinet.net.au and includes Graham Peden (Perth), John Berger (City), David Motta (Osborne Park), Judith Pinczuk (Perth), Lisa Kazalac (Perth) and Warwick Smith (Heirisson)

The Homeless Hub has developed a Strategic Directions paper for Rotary's efforts to address Homelessness.  It also has developed a Homelessness Prevention paper on how Rotary can help prevent homelessness.
