Raising funds for: Homeless for a Week

About the Campaign

In the last 12 months, we have seen homelessness more than double in our community, with many men, women and children experiencing homelessness for the first time, as we experience a housing crisis.

I am going homeless for a night for a mother who had to put her children in care because she could not find accommodation…

I am going homeless for a night for a wife who moved to Toowoomba to be close to her elderly husband who went into a nursing home due to his dementia and could not find accommodation for over four months so slept in her car…

I am going homeless for a night for the family who has been staying in a caravan because they had to vacate their rental which was put on the market in March and every house they apply for they get knocked back on, not because they have a bad rental history but because there is a housing shortage…

I am going homeless for a night for the 14-year-old boy who had to leave home because the violence was so bad…

I am going homeless for a night for the family who is frantically looking for a rental with wheelchair access before their lease runs out next month… 

I am going homeless for a night for the man who moved to Toowoomba for work last month and hasn’t found accommodation yet…

I am going homeless for a night for the young couple who are expecting a baby and sleeping in their car, hoping they will be accepted for a rental before their baby comes… 

I am going homeless for a night for the single mum whose partner left her in a smashed-up house which she barely affords, but she’s too scared to leave as she knows there is a housing crisis and if she moves out she mightn’t be able to find somewhere else…

I am going homeless for a night for the family of five, staying with their grandparents in their 3 bedroom home, it’s pretty stressful, but at least it’s a roof… 

 

I am going homeless to raise money so the BASE can continue to provide support and assistance to people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
