Raising Hope for the Homeless

CEO Sleepout 2016

CEO Sleepout 2016 

It is difficult to believe that in such an incredible and “lucky” country there are 105,000 Australians – including an increasing number of women and young children who struggle to survive and have no place to call home.  Did you know:

  • 24,000 are homeless because of domestic and family violence
  • 27% are children
  • Many Australians are only two pay days away from being homeless

Homelessness is a real statistic and can happen to anyone. We need to unite as a community to eradicate the homeless statistic by giving hope and assistance to the most vulnerable in our society. On 23 June I will join other business leaders in the 2016 Vinnie’s CEO Sleepout to support the challenge of raising awareness and much-needed funds to support the homeless in our community. Please help me to make a difference to the lives of others.


Thank you for your support.
