Samaritan House Geelong is a not-for-profit organisation providing crisis overnight accommodation for homeless men aged over 18 years. SHG is open 365 nights a year and can support up to 13 men per night. The organisation is run by one full time staff member, Josephine Barnes, together with a team of more than 110 volunteers. They provide a place of warmth, sanctuary and hope to some of the most vulnerable members of our community.

Josephine Barnes spoke to Mitchell’s Front Page about the organisation, and their winter appeal. For more details, visit their website:
