Launch Housing

Double Your Impact to Help Melbourne’s Homeless

While many of us are celebrating buying and selling homes – upsizing, downsizing, moving on and planning our futures, there are sadly hundreds of people in our own community whose lives are on hold as they face a brutal new wave of homelessness sweeping across Melbourne.

While many of us are celebrating buying and selling homes – upsizing, downsizing, moving on and planning our futures, there are sadly hundreds of people in our own community whose lives are on hold as they face a brutal new wave of homelessness sweeping across Melbourne.

These are the people who have joined the hidden homeless. Many are women who have no permanent housing. They may be living in unsafe or overcrowded places. Some may be couch surfing for now but pretty soon they may become rough sleepers when they can’t find a place to call home.

With winter just about upon us, the situation is about to reach crisis point, and Marshall White Foundation is calling upon its wide-reaching network to help people experiencing homelessness.

You can put your heart where homelessness is by making a donation to Launch Housing by the 1st of June and the Marshall White Foundation will DOUBLE the gift – up to the life-changing amount of $100,000.

Launch Housing’s Partnership & Engagement Manager Jeanelle Mariani said she has already been blown away by the fundraising efforts of Marshall White.

“Through April’s ‘Roughin It’ Challenge, Marshall White agents raised more than $16,000. This money has already been put towards making people’s lives just that little bit easier.”

Marshall White Foundation to Double Donations to Launch Housing during May

With a little over two weeks to go until the start of June, the race is on to raise even more for Launch Housing, and Marshall White are calling for everyone in their community to give what they can so that people aren’t sleeping rough this winter.

But much more needs to be raised to help Launch Housing achieve their ultimate goal.

“Our aim is to not merely ‘treat’ homelessness, but to end it,” Jeanelle explained.

Jeanelle said that while every individual’s situation is unique there are many systemic inadequacies that lead to homelessness.

“The Post COVID work environment, the mortgage stress that results. Low wage growth. The rise in domestic violence. Plus Australia has the third most expensive housing market in the world – which may be great for the Real Estate industry but not for vulnerable at-risk people.”

Donate before the 1st of June and DOUBLE your impact*
