Twelve times a year since our first VIP Shopping Day in June 2015, HoMie has closed its doors to the public and invited young people connected through community support services to shop for free at the HoMie Street Store.
Each VIP shopper is welcomed into our store for a day of pampering and fun. Young people select five free items of brand-new HoMie clothing, have access to haircuts and beauty services and enjoy lunch with our friendly team.
Apart from clothing, HoMie facilitates a dignified shopping experience, increased social inclusion, and feeling of connectedness for young people affected by homelessness or hardship.
Each young person attending is a HoMie VIP. This means they are welcomed kindly, treated with respect and provided exceptional customer service.
We hope the VIPs leave HoMie feeling special and supported by HoMie and the community at large. We also hope to introduce the VIP’s to the HoMie community, to create pathways into The HoMie Pathway Alliance Program.
