Stepping Stone House is one Sydney City Rotaract's oldest community partners, providing housing, support and guidance to youth who are homeless through no fault of their own.

Their largest fundraiser is Sleep Under the Stars, which involves corporates, families and young people forming teams, building cardboard shelters and sleeping rough for a night, which is a reality for 1 in 200 Australias.

This is a real chance to make a tangible difference in a lot of young people's lives. Stepping Stone House is aiming to $225,000 to provide housing, care and education for 8 homeless young people for 1 whole year!

We have two opportunities to make a difference to the lives of these young people:

1. Volunteer on the night! We need people for two groups. The first group will be on the registration desk from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. The second group will be manning the soup kitchen from 5:30pm to 9:30pm. If you'd like to volunteer for eiter group, please let April (Community Service Director) know on 0497 863 786.

2. You can sleep out and raise funds for Stepping Stone House! Simply register as an individual, set a fundraising goal and go for gold! Sleep out under the stars and have fun building box forts, roasting marshmallows, hearing from the young people who have come through the Stepping Stone House program and waking up to the most beautiful and iconic view Sydney has to offer. Please let us know if you are sleeping out, we'd love to catch up with you on the night!
