We are excited to announce a new partnership with Urban Seed. For over 20 years Urban Seed has been gathering around food, recreation and creative art to foster a sense of home – especially for people experiencing homelessness, addiction, mental illness and isolation. This gathering is the foundation of Urban Seed’s unique community development approach, where they seek to draw out the gifts, skills and potential of all involved. The partnership will enable our blankets and volunteers to reach a greater width of people in need of warmth and friendship.
To kick-start the partnership we have donated 80 blankets to be handed out to people experiencing homelessness in Melbourne. We will be working in with Urban Seed in their Outreach and Blanket Run activities.
Outreach and Blanket Run
Through Blanket Run and other outreach activities, we connect with members of the homeless community who may not otherwise come to Credo Café – community-run kitchen in a colourful church basement space, open for to people from all walks of life. Armed with blankets, food and flasks of coffee, we meet and chat with people in need of some physical and human warmth. In this way we connect with people experiencing marginalisation and invite them into a relational space in which they can belong.
