Mary Mac’s Place is open to anyone who is homeless, lonely or needing a helping hand.
We supply a two course sit down lunch daily and a place to shower and to wash clothes. We offer friendly, non-judgmental support and companionship plus access to outreach services like Legal Aid, Homeless Connector, emergency relief and counselling. Fresh surplus food is available daily to those in need, in addition to food hampers. We’re located in Woy Woy on the Central Coast.
We receive no funding.
MARY MAC'S RELIES 100% ON COMMUNITY SUPPORT.
Homelessness and social isolation is a community responsibility. Mary Mac’s costs over $150,000 per year to run. We provide more than 24,000 meals a year at a cost of $6.00 per meal.
We are aiming to raise funds to cover the costs of these meals so we can keep this essential service running.
PLEASE SHOUT A MATE A $6 PLATE TODAY!
Without your generosity we would need to turn many people away. Thanks so much for your support.
OUR COMPANIONS HAVE MANY FACES
These faces include homeless people, couch surfers, train sleepers, rough sleepers, and people sleeping in cars or residing with family or friends in overcrowded situations.
We’re seeing more women and children who are escaping domestic violence and sleeping in their cars because it’s not safe at home.
We have families where the main income earner has fallen ill needing surgery or treatment and cannot afford rent and food.
We see pensioners that lose a partner and now cannot afford rent, food or bills on a single pension and people who simply cannot afford the rising cost of rent.
People also come simply to have a chat and for the friendship opportunities as they are lonely or isolated.
It's really important that we assist our communities when they need us most. Your donation will feed a mate - thanks for your help!
