Make a difference to Melburnians in need this Christmas by donating to our Good Giving program.
Homelessness is a complex and confronting issue that can affect anyone at any point in their lives.
We believe all Melburnians deserve access to safe and affordable housing.
That’s why Homes Melbourne, a special entity of the City of Melbourne, is committed to ending homelessness in the city through our housing project, Make Room.
By donating to our Good Giving campaign this festive season, you will support Make Room and help those who need it most.
About Make Room
We’re stepping up to address homelessness by working in partnership with the Victorian Government, Unison, and the philanthropic and corporate sectors.
The $20 million Make Room development will deliver 50 studio apartments, housing and homelessness services, and other support. Residents will stay for up to 12 months, or until they are connected with long-term housing.
How your donation will help
This year we are raising funds to complete a dedicated floor for women in our Make Room development. Women are the fastest-growing group of people experiencing homelessness in our city.
This floor of 10 rooms will cost $1 million to build and fit out, or $100,000 per room.
This dedicated floor will be tailored to the diverse needs of women experiencing homelessness.
Our approach will be underpinned by a trauma-informed, harm minimisation model of care, ensuring women experiencing homelessness in Melbourne have access to safe and supported housing.
How to donate
By giving direct to Make Room, you are helping provide for people’s immediate needs and deliver the crucial, long-term support they need to exit homelessness and be connected to long-term housing.
