About the Event

Join us for morning tea as we fold origami houses and create a display for Homelessness Week.

Everyone is welcome. Please RSVP for catering purposes.

What's the campaign all about?

30,000 Victorians don’t have a home tonight including 6,800 children.

They’re living in their care, staying somewhere temporary like a friend’s couch, in a shelter or refuge, or have nowhere to go at all.

In a country as wealthy as Australia, no- one should be without a home.

The top 3 causes of homelessness are family violence, financial difficulties, and the housing crisis.

We can end homelessness by building more homes. For most people, a home that they can afford would end their homelessness.

The Victorian Homelessness Network (VHN) wants to raise awareness about the urgent need for more social and public housing.

Help fold 60,000 origami houses, to be displayed across Victoria during Homelessness Week.

On 31st July 2024 VHN will display 6,000 houses at Parliament House, representing 10% of the 60,000 social homes needed in Victoria, to highlight the urgent need for Governments to fix the housing crisis and end homelessness.

VHN are asking that State and Federal Governments commit to:

  • Building at least 60,000 additional, appropriate social homes to meet the current need to Victoria;
  • Implementing the 10 year National Plan, with a commitment to END homelessness.
