Paramedics couldn’t resucitate Michael Jackson, but we can resuscitate Just Enough Faith!!!!!

We have excellent grounds to believe that Just Enough Faith will soon be back from the brink of oblivion with bells on, and we call on all the following forms of action in anticipation and support of a rejuvenated Just Enough Faith.

We note that WE the Sydney Homeless community are making this appeal for support for Just Enough Faith WITHOUT any prior consultation or authority from the board of directors.

We believe that the board or its representatives may be constrained from raising funds resources or donations, by a lack of authority from the OLGR. This does not in any way constrain us in any way from seeking support as we are totally unaffiliated(we are not,nor ever have been, members). Nor does it constrain JEF from accepting prooffered support.

If we are wrong,we invite whomever to sue us, we don’t have anything of material value anyway, we are homeless,remember???? In fact,I take personal responsibility for this action, and rephrase that to “sue me”.

Peeps, ressurecting JEF will in my humble opinion be a big task but with your help NOT insurmountable. JUST ENOUGH FAITH HAS FOR 16 YEARS BEEN THE KEY PROVIDER OF SERVICES TO THE SYDNEY HOMELESS AND MARGINALISED COMMUNITY. THE FOODVAN SERVICE FILLS AN OTHERWISE UNREQUITED SERVICE NICHE, PROVIDING THE SOLE PLACE FOR CHILDREN FAMILIES AND WOMEN UNDER 21 TO OBTAIN A HOT EVENING MEAL IN THE SYDNEY CITY AREA.

Some 11 percent of patrons over the last 2 months have mental conditions.

Polling by our group consistently identifies 500 people per night rough sleeping.

Some 15 percent of regular patrons identify as housed in high rental accommodation having regard to their means.

Some 12 percent work in low wage jobs but cannot obtain housing.

Between 14 and 18 percent are foreign ESL students or people who have come to Australia seeking work, and been unable to obtain such work due to contraction of labour markets.

Some 25 percent are of pension age, or disability support pensioners.

Some 30 percent of patrons have returned for the first time in 5 or more years.

Most have at least one barrier to housing.
