Homelessness Australia is pleased to support Unhoused - Campaigning for safe homes for Australia’s women – calling for 16,810 homes for women. Women’s homelessness is a national crisis. The women’s safety and homelessness sector has determined that $7.6 billion is required from the Government over the next 4 years to provide long-term housing for Australia’s women. This investment would allow for the provision of 16,810 homes which provide immediate economic benefits of $15.3 billion and create 47,000 jobs across the economy**.
