Getting and maintaining a job is something many take for granted, but if you are experiencing homelessness or recently released from prison, it is out of reach. We partnered with The National Homeless Collective to create paid workplace training opportunities in a non-judgemental environment that is supportive and set up for success.
Our partnership and homeless work program creates job training opportunities in warehousing, order fulfilment and customer service and work in processing for recycling to support work after prison or homelessness.
Donna Stolzenberg is the founder and visionary leader for The National Homeless Collective. She is a proud Indigenous woman from the Ngatjumay and Mirning People. She is passionate about human rights and treating people equally and with dignity, meeting those at their most vulnerable in a non-judgemental and supportive way.
Donna is the recipient of the 2021 VIC Australian of the Year award! Which is a wonderful acknowledgment of her incredible work. You can learn more about her here.
Kelly (our founder) and Donna have been working together since late 2019 preparing for the launch of Underwear for Humanity and have a strong connection based on trust and a shared determination for change.
