Volunteers from Port Augusta’s KDs Hair Flair; Hannah Wilson and Courtney Liebelt, have done their bit for the initiative, and have given their time to cut and colour the hair of many of the men and women who attended the breakfast.
The theme of this year’s Homelessness week is ‘Action and Innovation’, which aims to spotlight many effective ways specialist services continue to implement in responding to homelessness.
Centacare social work student Amy Canham O’Neil, says the energy amongst men and women at the breakfast was infectious for all involved, resulting in a positive outcome in the wake of Homelessness Week 2017.
