Louise Cowan from Shekinah House spoke to us on Thursday evening about the blight in Launceston for the many homeless people in our city and around Australia. Her intention is to be able to self fund (without 'hoping' for Government assistance) a homeless shelter in Launceston.
Launceston does already have shelters, but the need is far greater than is currently being met.
She told us about their Charity Shop at 293 Wellington which is a way to raise funds for Shekinah House which should provide a portion of the funds to cover the basic ongoing costs of the shelter.
We wish her all the best with this venture.
