Cardinia Life is a Cafe Smart location in 2019

More than 116,000 people across Australia are without a safe and secure place to call home. That’s why we are donating $1 from every coffee sold on Friday 9th August 2019 to support local homelessness services as part of #cafesmart #helpyourhood 

Street Smart is a foundation that helps raise funds to help eliminate homelessness. Street Smart supports smaller, grassroots, community-based organisations with limited fundraising options or capacity. Their focus is to support people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

For more information please see their website: StreetSmartAustralia

Homelessness is a hidden and significant issue in Cardinia Shire, impacting disproportionately on women, single people, sole parent families, younger and older residents, people with mental illness and people with a disability. Compared to other Victorian local government areas, Cardinia Shire shows the second highest increase in its rate of homelessness in the last five years.
