My Story

Your donation will raise much needed funds for homeless mums and toddlers in GOOD SAMARITAN HOUSING. Help us give the women and children a hand up not a hand out. Encouraging others to also donate. The 12 month program helps the women to gain emotional and social stability, develop their parenting skills and do vocational training through TAFE so that at the end of their time in the program they can successfully move into independent living in the local community. Any amount you can give makes a difference! Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. THANK YOU for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Good Samaritan Housing create a better future for the women and children who come to us.

About my cause: Good Sams

The Sisters of the Good Samaritan (known affectionately as the Good Sams) were Australia’s first ‘home grown’ order of religious women, established in Sydney in 1857 by Archbishop Bede Polding. The Sisters take their name and inspiration from the Parable of the Good Samaritan. They share a commitment to be ‘neighbour’ to those in need, with a special focus on assisting vulnerable women and children.

The Sisters’ first home in Pitt Street Sydney was demolished in 1901 to make way for the construction of Sydney’s Central Railway Station. Historic Toxteth House at Glebe Point became their new residence. Now, after more 150 years serving the poor and needy, the Sisters original mission continues. Working with their partners in ministry, the Sisters bring compassion and justice to an expanding global neighbourhood.
