To me the beauty of Sydney Homeless Connect  is seeing the joy in people’s faces as they have these lovely experiences on the day. It’s achieving these tangible outcomes that help people get onto the path out of homelessness that makes all the work worthwhile.

Tracy Everingham

Tracy is one of the founding members of Sydney Homeless Connect - a program designed to bring together people who are homeless and at risk of homelessness in Sydney with the services and support that they need whilst providing them with a positive day they will remember. This annual event brings together professionals that can help the homeless, like legal aid, housing commissions, employment bureaus, and countless other organisations that want to help those in need. The day also includes a healthy lunch, haircutting, portraits, animal care, free clothing, and even therapeutic massages. As the Head of Operations for the charity, Tracy is responsible for ensuring the smooth running of the logistics of the annual event and also coordinates much of the day-to-day business of the charity. Tracy’s exceptional organisational skills and attention to detail help her to keep Sydney Homeless Connect delivering the work that she is so passionate about. This vital link in the community has been operating for two years.
