'Tis the Season of Belonging

We all do better when we feel like we belong

Thanks to your support, Red Cross is helping make this the Season of Belonging for everyone.

But this can be a difficult time of year for many people doing it tough.

Mikaela knows that well. She experienced years of isolation and homelessness, until the day she walked through the door of Red Cross Night Café in Brisbane.

The safety, comfort and friendship served up by Red Cross helped Mikaela turn around her life. She’s now a youth worker, with a home, car and cat.
