Help end homelessness in Victoria

Every person deserves a safe and secure home. But across Victoria, people are struggling with rising rents and a chronic shortage of social and affordable housing. A lack of housing that people can afford creates more homelessness, but growing demand often means that homelessness services are unable to provide support to everyone who needs it.

You can be part of the solution. Browse this page to learn how you can take action today.
