You are walking in Jamie's boots

Jamie’s story is one of resilience and courage.

Jamie's journey took a difficult turn when he relocated for work and found himself struggling with alcohol use, costing him his job. The challenges he faced began to strain his relationships, ultimately leading to experiences of homelessness in both Tasmania and Adelaide.

Enduring months of sleeping rough in Adelaide, Jamie discovered hope and support through Hutt St Centre and the generosity of our community. With unwavering determination and access to vital resources, Jamie regained control of his life. 

With unwavering determination and access to vital resources, Jamie regained control of his life. 

“I’m so proud of how far I’ve come, but I couldn’t have done it without the help of Hutt St Centre and people like you.”
