Homelessness and social housing need in your local community

Every night more than 122,000 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 640,000 social housing properties.[2]
