I provide a service to the homeless

The issue of homelessness in Australia has reached a critical point, as an increasing number of people face immense challenges within the country’s private rental market. This pressing concern is further intensified by a chronic shortage of social and affordable housing, leaving countless individuals without a secure and suitable place to call their own.

Support us in our efforts to stand up for the basic human right of having a secure and permanent living space for all.

On a mission to end homelessness in Queensland

In our efforts to bring about positive change in the lives of individuals facing homelessness or at risk of homelessness, we work closely with our partners, individuals, and specialized homelessness services (SHS) across Queensland. Our collaborative approach allows us to stand together, united in our mission to advocate for the rights and well-being of these vulnerable populations. By combining our resources and expertise, we aim to make a meaningful impact and provide support to those who need it the most.

We work with

Human and Community Services

A strong sector also includes our partners from local communities, networks, service providers, education providers, non-government agencies, and diverse governments and government departments.

Emergency Relief Services

Essential services like food, shelter, and clothing are vital for individuals in need. Our goal is to collaborate with these services to push for more funding, enabling them to offer necessary assistance to those experiencing homelessness or financial hardship. Please contact us if your a service that provided this support, and be part of our network.
