A shower and laundry facility for people experiencing homelessness was recently opened at the Copper Coast Salvation Army, Kadina (SA).
Salvo officer (minister) Captain Debbie Wilson said the ‘Homeless but not Forgotten’ project was funded by the Rotary Club of Northern Yorke Peninsula.
‘Through our Community Support Service, we knew there was a need for a shower for the more than 50 people in the area who are living rough, in cars and couch surfing,’ she said.
‘This has been very much a community project with a local business donating a clothes dryer and the Uniting Churches in Kadina and Wallaroo providing new tracksuits and underwear to give out.
‘We will be able to link those using the facility with our Community Support Service so we can help with food, blankets and referrals to other services.’
