Youth Ambassador Steph Rutter

October 2015

Steph Rutter, the Faith and Justice Captain at Our Lady of Mercy College in Heidelberg, this year set out to take people from their sometimes limited knowledge of family violence, to understand the real life consequences for many women and children, especially homelessness. She was part of the team at OLMC that developed an awareness raising campaign and a school and community event, called No Place Called Home, funded through a $5,000 Lord Mayor’s grant. The project raised the school and wider community’s level of understanding, while also raising money for our services.
