AnglicareSA Homelessness Services


Every year 2,500 families seek support from AnglicareSA’s homelessness services with 38% affected by domestic and family violence, including many single mothers with children.

Donations to the Abseil Challenge will enable our Emergency Assistance Centres to provide a safety net to families and individuals who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in the City.


Power Generation


In partnership with Port Adelaide Football Club, our Power Generation program provides employment & training support to Aboriginal students and graduates of the Aboriginal Power Cup. This program also provides young people with wrap-around support for their personal needs including housing support, drivers’ licenses and financial counselling.

Your donation through the Abseil Challenge will enable AnglicareSA to offer the Job Ready and Support safety net to more Aboriginal youth in SA.

Abseil for AnglicareSA 2016 was a massive success with a bunch of Adelaide personalities joining us including Mix 102.3’s Jodie and Soda and players from the Port Adelaide Football Club.

The event will be run in conjunction with Zenith Events; an adventure based Events Company with a 100% safety record. Qualified abseil professionals will be on-site to prepare and guide each participant on the day.
