Walk a Mile in my Boots

RSL Care SA walk for the Homeless Veterans Support fundraiser

For the fourth year in a row, RSL Care SA staff braved the chilly early morning conditions to participate in the Hutt Street Centre’s Walk a Mile in my Boots on Friday 11th August.

Walk a mile in my boots provides RSL Care SA with a fantastic opportunity to show its support for an organisation that does so much for those experiencing homelessness in Adelaide. Staff are particularly passionate about supporting those experiencing homelessness. Homeless Veterans support is one of the many services we offer at RSL Care SA.

RSL Care SA has its own Andrew Russell Veteran Living program (ARVL) supporting ex-service personnel who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. ARVL has received a number referrals from the Hutt Street Centre. We have been able to reach out and provide transit, accommodation and support services. These services directly contribute to getting these individuals back on their feet.

It was great to see a number of our staff braving the cold to support ‘Walk a Mile in My Boots.’ It is a key fundraiser for the Hutt Street Centre. Funds raised are directed into their Day Centre which provide many services including:

  • crisis assistance
  • access point for those experiencing homelessness
  • essential services
  • referrals to support organisations, including RSL Care SA

RSL Care SA has many opportunities to Volunteer as well. If you would like to know more about Volunteering click here.

We are an organisation that has been helping the ex-service and wider community for 100 years.
