Each year, Sydney’s Jewish House staff and volunteers join with local councils and other homelessness services and community housing providers, participate in a homelessness street count.

The Jewish House

Street counts collect accurate and up-to-date information about people sleeping rough in the local area and are an integral part of monitoring progress and developing responses to reduce the number of people experiencing homelessness in the local community.

Jewish House is looking for volunteers to join us on February 22, from 11 pm – 3 am, to walk the local area and count people sleeping rough.

Jewish House houses up to 80 people per night with nowhere else to sleep, in our accommodation services. The street count will help develop our prevention and intervention services and advocate for additional services and support for people in need.
