Launch Housing work to both support individuals experiencing homelessness and to address the root causes of homelessness: a lack of affordable housing.
In 2019 Launch Housing debuted one innovative solution to Victoria’s housing crisis – unlocking unused government land for tiny homes.
The Harris Transportable Housing project utilises nine parcels of vacant VicRoads land in Footscray and Maidstone to create 57 tiny homes for people with a chronic experience of homelessness. The tiny homes have been life changing for the people who call them home.
Solutions like this require collaboration, community support and the will to do things differently.
You may wish to support Launch Housing by signing their PETITION to solve homelessness by purchasing 500 currently vacant properties across Melbourne.
Please share the campaign with your friends, family and networks.
