You’re a Hidden Homeless Ally

With no safe home, Melinda* and Katy* slept in their car. Domestic violence forced Melinda and her daughter Katy to flee their home in the middle of the night. With nowhere else to go, they lived in their car. Scared and anxious, they need an Ally. They need you. 

Melinda and Katie were part of Australia’s Hidden Homeless

Hidden Homelessness can happen to anyone, through no fault of their own. Illness, job loss or domestic violence can mean people end up homeless. To survive they live in their cars, a garage or other temporary, often insecure accommodation. They are Australia’s unseen homeless. 

When you become a Hidden Homeless Ally you’re joining a powerful movement of people committed to ending the silent epidemic of Hidden Homelessness in Australia.
