What can we do?

Our plan is simple. We put people in homes.

Goodna Street Life are currently working towards constructing a local Tiny Homes project, to provide transitional, and crisis accommodation as a first step to secure and affordable housing.

The next step is sourcing affordable long term housing.

In Queensland there are roughly 29,000 people on a waiting list for community housing. To overcome this challenge community and government must come together to increase invest in public housing.

All funds raised will help us provide housing and accommodation, and connect people to the appropriate support services to help people achieve independence.

Together we can defeat homelessness and ensure everyone has a safe place to call home.
