Vinnies Vans

Vinnies Vans are outreach services that provide meals and snacks, blankets, toiletries, hot beverages, and, most importantly, companionship and referrals where needed to people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Our Vans operate across Greater Sydney and in targeted regional areas, ensuring we reach highly at-risk communities with additional wrap-around supports.
