REDLAND Community Centre is holding an open day for services that help people who are homeless in the Redlands.

The centre runs the Homeless United program through which they give people who are homeless a meal seven days a week.

Centre general manager Allison Wicks said the Homeless United program had started in June and had delivered many benefits to members.

The program had helped people reconnect with family, find affordable housing, find jobs and take part in community work. 

Redland Community Centre has called for sponsorship and donations for the Homeless United program.

The open day, supported by Redland City Council, will be on Friday, October 19 from 10am to 2pm.

Any service providers who help the homeless are invited to take part.

It will be at the Redland Community Centre, 29 Loraine Street, Capalaba.

The Redland Community Centre is also hosting a dinner for World Homeless Day on Wednesday, December 10.

Centre general manager Allison Wicks said the event was an opportunity for attendees to connect with the Homeless United program and see the impact it had on people who are homeless in the Redlands.

Redland Community Centre is the lead agency that co-ordinates an integrated homelessness working group for the Redlands.
