Mick* never expected to be facing homelessness in his 50s

He was once a hardworking landscaper. But a relationship breakdown and struggles with his mental health hit him hard.

He lost his business, fell out of touch with his family, and spiralled into homelessness and addiction.

Mick went through some very hard years – physically and emotionally - on the streets. When his 55th birthday was approaching, he knew he didn't want to be homeless when it came around.

Mick’s story can happen to anyone. You can help someone like Mick find a safe home.

Mick recalls the moment he knew he wanted change for good

He said to himself, "I'm really going to turn this around now. It's time to change the pattern."

He went to the Mission Australia Centre, where he could access a doctor, dentist and support for his mental health. Mick also enrolled himself in a counselling program to deal with his alcohol addiction.

 The generosity of people like you gave Mick the support he needed to turn his life around.
