mix94.5 listener lends a helping hand

Mix 94.5 FM in Perth’s drive show hosts Lisa and Tim received a call from Aaron, a young homeless adult living on the streets of Perth.

Aaron said: “It‟s a lot more difficult to get into public housing that everyone realises. People that are homeless, they don‟t have the money and the resources to get all their ID‟s, and all the money together to get in there. A proof of age card costs fifty dollars. I‟m sleeping on the street and fifty dollars is a lot of money.”

After hearing Aaron’s call, Jason from Morley contacted mix 94.5 and tthrough the show producers, he managed to get in contact with young Aaron.

Jason said: “I was completely gobsmacked. I got in the car, I heard the story and I felt completely moved. Just even putting that on-air has really inspired me to have a look at what people like me can do in the community.”

Jason did research into how he can help Aaron and is taking him to get his ID cards sorted. He has also said he is prepared to pay for his accommodation in the meantime and make a donation to the first agency that takes him.
