Not Another Book
Crisis accommodation for families escaping danger
“This book changed my life” you explain as they stare blankly at the ex-sports star’s memoir you’ve just given them. You realise, in that moment, the autographed book serves as a very personalised reminder that the two of you don’t really have as much in common as you thought.
Not Another Book can provide crisis accommodation to people needing an urgent, temporary place to stay. They might be a family escaping violence at home, or someone who has sought asylum here in Australia and is now facing homelessness. With a roof over their heads and the care of our case workers, they can breathe a little easier and plan their next steps. This is a life-changing gift, so bookmark it for their next pressie and show you really care.
Thank you! This gift will support our work with migrants experiencing vulnerability, helping them make ends meet, be safe, and stay connected to those they love. It is also tax-deductible.
