Children and their families shouldn’t be homeless at Christmas

Droughts, bushfires, a pandemic and a recession. The past year has been challenging for us all but 2020 has been most difficult for single-parent families and children already living on the brink.

Did you know that in recent months almost one million Australians were unemployed, pushing more families closer to homelessness.1

With hundreds of thousands of Australians out of work and struggling to make ends meet, this Christmas will be an anxious time without your help. Donate today and help a family find a safe home in their hour of need.

Helping vulnerable families find a safe home

Before the pandemic, Jackie*, a single mother of two, was only just scraping by. During COVID-19, her work hours were significantly reduced and finding enough for rent, childcare and bills was unimaginable.

If I can’t find more work soon, I won’t be able to keep up childcare, rent and other bills. I feel so sad that I can’t do more for my children this Christmas.

Mission Australia helped Jackie find affordable housing and supported the family, but Jackie isn’t the only one facing financial strain this Christmas. There are many other single parents with young children struggling to make ends meet.

Will you help families like Jackie’s find a safe home?
