Your donation can help rebuild strength

There are thousands of Australians out there who personify heroism. They're strong, they're brave, they're tough. But they're not athletes or celebrities.

They're women who find the courage to flee from abusive households, men who find strength to overcome disadvantaged upbringings and parents who make incredible sacrifices to keep their children safe.

They're people who Vinnies and its volunteers assist each and every day.

And it's your donations that will let us rebuild their strength this Christmas.

“I have faced adversity my whole life. I will continue to face it. But I will never give up.”

From the age of 15 John battled a drug addiction. Years later he truly felt what it was like to hit rock bottom. While driving under the influence of drugs, he crashed, seriously injuring himself and his daughter.

This was a defining moment in John's life; he could give up and let his daughter be taken away, or he could summon the strength to turn his life around. It was at this moment that John bravely reached out to Vinnies or help.

With the support of Vinnies Volunteer Emma, John courageously beat his drug addiction, secured a full time job and found a place to call home. Today John is determined to help his daughter get into a journalism course at university.

“I was the person who people would turn to for help, then all of a sudden my life started falling apart and I was sinking.”

Anna's journey is one of sheer courage and resilience. After fleeing an abusive relationship with her two young children, she faced the grim reality of being homeless.

Despite her bravery, Anna faced a life-defining decision; give up custody of her children, or find an appropriate home to live in. It was at this moment that Anna found courage to reach out to Vinnies for help.

A Vinnies volunteer Chloe came to Anna's aid. She began by helping Anna find a more affordable home outside of the city. She even helped with smaller things, like buying new school uniforms for Anna's kids. On top of that, Chloe stuck by Anna's side as she regained the strength she once had.
