“All I wanted was to do was go home”
From the cherished warmth of her grandma’s house to the heart-wrenching displacement that tore their family apart. This story traces a journey of resilience, ultimately leading to the creation of Coffee 4 Craig, where the simple act of offering clean underwear becomes a symbol of dignity and self-esteem.
Coffee4Craig was founded in 2013, following the death of Risha’s brother. What began as a reaction to this has flourished into a mission to empower those experiencing homelessness with hope, support and a fresh start.
Coffee4Craig provides a drop-in service, supporting homeless people by providing a home-cooked meal, access to a medic, a shower, barbering service and advice.
Drop-in is open at The Meanwhile, 153 Great Ducie Street from 6-8pm Monday to Friday and from 5-7pm at the weekend.
