Who are Australia’s hidden homeless?

Even if we don’t see it, homelessness is all around us. Hidden homelessness can happen to anyone, through no fault of their own.

The increased cost of living, impact of domestic and family violence, mental health issues and the lack of affordable housing for vulnerable people - these are all factors contributing to a homelessness crisis in Australia.

Every night, over 122,000 Australians are homeless1 - living in their cars, a garage or other temporary, often insecure accommodation.

They are Australia’s hidden homeless.

What Mission Australia is doing to help

The cost of homelessness is simply unacceptable in a country like ours, but we can all do something about it.

Your generosity can provide families who are doing it tough, the safety and stability of ‘home’.

Family

Support for families

Circumstances shouldn’t define a person’s future. Your donation gives struggling families the opportunity for a brighter future. Providing immediate support like living essentials, and ongoing long-term solutions like counselling to help heal the trauma of homelessness.

Housing

Boost supply of affordable housing

There are simply not enough of the right type of homes that people can afford anymore. You’re helping Mission Australia build, buy, and manage suitable properties - and make sure people are supported to stay in them.

Homelessness prevention

Homelessness prevention

Every Australian deserves a safe and secure home, but we can’t end homelessness without your help. We know that family violence and mental health are key contributors to homelessness. With your support, Mission Australia is increasing work in these and other root causes of homelessness.
