They are often numb with cold, terrified - some will be beaten, abused and killed. For many street children each day is just another day to endure and survive. That is ... unless they come to Casa Alianza. For many homeless children we are the only place to go where they can be safe and away from the hostile, dangerous streets that are no place for an adult let alone vulnerable and defenceless children. We offer sanctuary, safety, a clean warm bed to sleep in, hot nutritious food and most important of all ... hope and an option to leave the streets once and for all and with our help build a future. We have an open door policy; no child is ever turned away. We respond to their immediate needs and provide guidance, support and residential care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and encourage them to stay with us and leave the streets behind. Our crisis centres operate well beyond capacity and this year, with the harsh economic reality, we know that we will somehow have to cope with even more homeless children. Whenever the economy is bad - when families struggle to put food on the table ... sometimes it all breaks down and all too often children end up on the streets. We need to reach more homeless children and urgently need your help. Whilst we may think that we are having a tough time with the economic downturn, the harsh reality is that in the Countries where we work record numbers of families and children are forced out to the margins of survival – the need and call to help has never been greater. Please donate whatever you can afford About Casa Alianza Casa Alianza has developed a five stage core programme that starts on the streets and ends in kids having a home and hope for the future. We start with street outreach and pre-community work with homeless children and young people and then offer access to crisis centres, transition homes and finally group homes. We currently work with over 10,000 children each year and have over 2,000 children in our residential care programmes. ADDICTIVE PHILOSOPHY:- play a range of original music from mellow rocksteady to full throttle thrash, but mainly levelling out in the Ska/Punk area - think Rancid, Specials, Inner Terrestrials and Crass, but as far and wide as The Paragons to Discharge. THE DUEL:- Powerful female fronted punk band who love-Ramones, Dead Boys, Clash, Sex Pistols, Blondie, Iggy & The Stooges, Patti Smith, Uk Subs, The Vibrators, The Damned +++ LOWLIFE UK:- Black Flag meets Black Lace hardcore WMC punk. Abusing the public and themselves since 1995. SILENT JACK:- A hard rocking sleaze band from Birmingham with the attitude, style and badass music that will make any individual cry out in climax. EXIT THE NETWORK:- Edgy Joy Divisionesque meets Crisis and Flux whilst listening to The Fall SODS LAW:- Punk as... from Derby-bring on the noise CARL NEWTON:- Top notch singer song writer with a fine punk rock pedigree BROCKER:- Shambolic Rock n' Roll tunes with Punk Rock attitude and twists from Ska, Rockabilly, Reggae or even Flamenco. A must see live for a shot of stamina! FREEDOM FACTION:- Quality punk stuff with great tunes E.S.O:- Punk on 45 v Slaughter and The Dogs THE POOR GEEZERS:- Often confused with the old geezers, they play just what they want and are a tad strange APOCALYPSE BABYS:- Tight and bouncy Screeching Weasel type creature which eats Ramones records RUDE AND RECKLESS:- Youngsters making fine unrefined punk rock LUDDITE BASTARD:- So that’s who nicked my Leftover Crack records JOY RADIO:- A hardcore punk band playing love songs, if Sonic Youth were playing Buzzcocks songs then it might sound something like this.
