Everyone deserves somewhere to call home, enough to eat, and someone to call on in times of need. When we feel isolated, a friend to reach out to can make all the difference.
AMICA is a lunch-time program run by WIRE to support people experiencing isolation and homelessness — the word means ‘friend’ in Italian. AMICA makes an incredible difference to the lives of the women, nonbinary and gender-diverse people who use the program.
Right now, there aren’t enough funds secured to ensure AMICA can continue to operate for another year.
Every $25 we raise covers lunch and an excursion or activity for one participant — like yoga classes, excursions and art therapy. Will you help us raise $90,000 by June 30 to keep the program going for another year?
How can you help?
We’re asking you to fundraise with us and share in the AMICA experience: have a picnic or run a lunch-time activity, arrange a work gathering or simply get to together with your friends for a lunch-time conversation.

You’ll have a great time, experience the transformative power of community and connection and raise funds for the AMICA program. At the same time, you will increase awareness of the homelessness and isolation faced by many women, nonbinary and gender-diverse members of the community.
As a Crowdraiser, we will support your fundraising with materials to help you start off. This includes a copy of ‘Home is where the Art Is’, a compilation of artwork and pieces from AMICA users sharing stories of their journey.
