According to Mission Australia statistics, more than 100,000 Australians are homeless.
That’s a jaw-dropping number of men, women and children who don’t have a solid roof over their head each night.
This week, Mission Australian called upon Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to do more at a national level about reducing homelessness.
Already working to help those who are experiencing homelessness - and other social issues - is the Rough Edges cafe in the inner-city suburb of Darlinghurst in Sydney - near King’s Cross
Supported by the local church St John's Darlinghurst, Rough Edges is a supportive and caring place for people living on the streets.
Brad Lovegrove is a Minister at St Johns and Chaplain at Rough Edges and he joins me tonight
