Over the last couple of days, we have seen a millionaire sports star crowdfund for the purpose of “fighting for what’s right”…. that’s code for wanting to spread hateful and homophobic views, with no consequence from their employer. Youth who identify as LGBTIQ, the very group being targeted,  are over-represented in homelessness statistics. The main reason for this is that they are kicked out of home when they disclose their sexual identity. Every single day young LGBQTI people are discriminated against, abused and tossed aside – purely because of their sexuality. We think funding safe beds to sleep in and […]

There is no sound in this world to me more heartbreaking than the cries of a Mother as she buries her child. The confusion and reality, surrealism and truth of what is happening intertwine until you get to a space where nothing makes sense at all anymore. Yet somehow your body goes through the motions and your heart continues to beat even though the pain is so intense it feels as though it could stop at any moment. That if it knew what was good for it, it would stop at any moment. Fathers grieve too and their pain is just […]

Please take the time to read this article from our Founder and CEO. She took this call today Thursday 30th May 2019. The phone call I received today shouldn’t have surprised me, but it frustrated me so much more than usual. There was nothing unusual about the call itself though. I get them all the time. As we come to the end of our fundraiser for the funeral of Courtney Herron, a young 25-year-old woman brutally murdered in a park only a few days ago, it was hard not to feel defeated by this particular call, even though it was […]

On May 25 Courtney Herron was brutally murdered in Melbourne. Courtney had no safe place to call home and became the victim of yet another crime of violence against women. She was taken from her family far too soon and her death was  We’re raising money to cover the costs of Courtney’s funeral expenses, to save her family from further grief at having to find funds to bury their daughter.  All money donated will be given directly to Courtney’s family to help give Courtney the proper funeral service her family plan for her and hopefully alleviate some of the added […]

Want to volunteer? We had a lot of interest from people who want to join our renovation rescue team but who weren’t able to make it on Sunday. The renovations are for our new community space and Op Shop that will provide new and supportive employment opportunities for women experiencing homelessness and escaping domestic abuse situations. We have the space but it needs a lot of love can care. If you’d like to contribute to the renovations in any way please join the group and please tag or bring along anyone whom you think might be able to help us. […]

Our very organised supervisor, Santa Simon and his team of lovely elves wrapped all 89 of these gifts yesterday and they’ll be delivered soon to make sure they arrive in time for Christmas Day.

How do you feed 600 hungry partygoers in an Amphitheater, making sure no one slips on a death onion? You call us! We were thrilled to be the charity partners for the Vollyspot Max Graef event yesterday, keeping hundreds of folk fed and safe from onion slippage as they partied the day away. We went through hundreds of delicious vege burgers and countless onion safe sausages. These gigs attract the best crowds. Super friendly and just all round good people. Thanks for having us along again, Vollyspot! What a great team we make! A massive thank you to all of our volunteers […]

The space is gorgeous but she needs a bit of a facelift and it’ll take all manner of trades folk to help us get her ready for her grand […]

Looks so much like Melbourne, doesn’t it? People sleeping on the streets with nowhere to call home. This is New York City on the corner of 34th street and 5th Avenue. This is real and it’s happening everywhere. This is someone’s ‘home’. We want to lead by example and eradicate this ridiculously ‘acceptable’ human situation. People should not live like this but they do. We’ve seen with our own eyes, they do. Please, now is the time to knock on the doors of your elected members of parliament. Ask them what they’re doing about homelessness. Don’t ask what they’re going […]
