Every night almost 120,000 Australians are homeless in Australia[1].  Homelessness affects every part of our country. 

The best way to help end homelessness is to provide more social housing for people who need a home. But Australia has a shortfall of 433,400 social housing properties.[2]

Look for your state and federal electorate below to find out how many people are homeless and how much social housing is needed near you.


And tell the Treasurer he needs to invest in more social housing!
