The Jacaranda Run to Restore is set to be another outstanding event supporting young women experiencing homelessness. Over 500 people in the Sutherland Shire and Georges River region experience homelessness every night. This includes young and vulnerable women who are without a safe place to stay. This is simply not okay. Join us on May 27th, 2023 as we run or walk and raise money that will enable Jacaranda Cottage to continue providing support to young women experiencing homelessness. 

At the end of 2022, Jacaranda Cottage had no option but to close its doors due to funding cuts. This has meant that the only female homelessness youth refuge in the Sutherland Shire is gone. This has created a huge gap for young women in desperate need. Jacaranda Cottage has housed young women for over 30 years, and we are not done yet. Since closing, Jacaranda Cottage has partnered with our sister service, Platform Nine. Together, we have created a new youth arm of Platform Nine which will continue to be known as Jacaranda Cottage. This partnership has created new and exciting opportunities to serve and support young women experiencing homelessness in our region. 

With your involvement, Jacaranda Cottage will continue to flourish into the future.
