HOW WE BEGAN
The Perth Homeless Support Group Inc. (PHSG) was started by Ron Reid and Michael Edwards in 2014 during the January summer heatwave. They realised the only free water accessible to the homeless in Perth was warm and came up with the idea of giving the homeless reusable water bottles and a water card so that they were able to access the cold water accessible from the ProAqua fountains.
To share this idea, a Perth Homeless Support Group Facebook page was created and within 2 weeks, the group reached over 800 members, and not boasts 12,5000 members. You can join the Facebook group here.
