They received a complaint about some individuals sleeping rough at a park. But instead of turning them away, Kangaroo Point Neighbourhood Watch (KPNHW) decided to work with Micah Projects to support the homeless.

For their 12 June meeting, KPNHW invited Micah Projects’ Natalie Garth and Dr Saad Farooqui to gain a better understanding of homelessness in Brisbane. The neighbourhood watch decided to conduct a fundraiser to help rough sleepers access housing.

KPNHW is holding its Christmas in July Fundraiser in support of the work of Micah Projects. The fundraising event will be held at a beautiful river setting at Medley Café and Restaurant in Kangaroo Point on Monday, 17 July 2017.
