Vale Ruth McCance
Wednesday 27 May 2020 marks the one year anniversary of the death of Ruth McCance, who died in a tragic mountaineering incident in the Himalayas.
Beloved by all, Ruth was a distinguished Chairperson of St Laurence House (2010-2016) and committee member (2007-2016).
In memory of Ruth, Sydney composer Brooke Shelley has written and performed Song for Ruth.
We urgently need your help to raise $90,000 this financial year.
St Laurence House provides long-term accommodation and teaches life skills in a supportive environment for children and young people at risk of homelessness.
Our Supported Transitional Accommodation for Youth (STAY) program provides a much-needed intensive living skills program and support to 16 to 25-year old’s who are at risk of becoming homeless. In the past year, 38 young people took part in STAY and 80% managed to keep their secure tenancy.
I Want To…
The beauty of our long-term program is that we have the time to create connections with the kids and the space to listen and respond when issues arise.
Here are the stories of just five young people we’ve worked with.
With your support we can continue to transform more lives.
