About Eastern Emergency Relief Network

 

Eastern Emergency Relief Network Inc (EERN) was established in October 1995 at the instigation of local welfare providing groups (in the City of Whitehorse) in recognition of the need for a central source of second-hand furniture and other household goods for distribution, as emergency aid, to the less fortunate in our community.

The people assisted are those who have been identified by member agencies to have an urgent need. Such need may have arisen as a result of experiencing trauma or loss, where they have a need to move or perhaps cannot afford basic living requirements, where they are struggling to buy essentials such as furniture, other household goods, food, personal hygiene products. Such traumas include long term illness, unemployment, loss of home and belongings through fire, domestic violence, lack of family support or homelessness, refugees.

Recipients can only access the warehouse through member agencies of EERN.
