Choose love and support people like Andrew.

As a young, gay man, Andrew left his country town to come to Sydney, searching for a community that would accept and love him for who he was. Like all of us, he just wanted to feel like he belonged.

Sadly, Andrew quickly found himself on the streets - an outcast in a city that can be cold and unwelcoming.

But at Wayside, Andrew was met with warmth and compassion.

“When you're on the streets, Wayside is a safe place to come and hang out and be okay for a while, and not be cold, and not be wet and get a change of socks, or have a shower, and something cheap to eat,” says Andrew.

“I thought, this is somewhere where I'm going to come and hang out, because I’m going to be accepted here.”

Now, Andrew comes to Wayside regularly to see his mates and to take part in our many programs. He’s made many connections in the community, not only with visitors but also with volunteers and staff.

Andrew now feels like he belongs here in this city, as much as anyone.

By becoming a Monthly Giver, you will ensure that we can continue to provide unconditional love, care and support to anyone who needs us.
