Initially, HD Streetwise Outreach started with the collection of back packs and water bottles which were donated to likeminded organisations, such as Passages and Vincent Care. These were to be distributed to those in need. This then expanded to include toiletries and towels etc.
Today HDStreetwise is now hands on and facilitates many outreach programs which includes accepting donations, preparing emergency packs and distributing directly to the homeless or families and individuals in crisis.
Working with industry partners, HDStreewise provides emergency relief packages. Donations are received for clothing, blankets, toiletries, etc., the items are sorted, itemised and packed by volunteers.
Working with Industry Partners, HDStreetwise assists clients who are in crisis situations who are seeking employment and require appropriate clothing for job interviews.

HDStreetwise receives donations of fabric that are cut into squares by volunteers. These are then distributed to the Quilting Angel volunteers (who can be anywhere within a 400km radius) to be sewn into quilts. The quilts are then directly distributed by HDStreetwise through the outreach program.
