Help stop the spread

We are working hard to protect and care for Melbourne’s homeless in urgent need of assistance.

Launch Housing remains open, and our front-line staff are the first-responders during this state of emergency.
Our support workers are delivering care packages to people sleeping rough, and if needed are providing priority access to screening and care at hospitals.

It’s difficult to self-isolate when you have no home, so we are finding and securing emergency accommodation to help individuals and families in crisis.

We need to act now by getting people masks, hygiene kits, emergency supplies, care packages and crisis accommodation to prevent the spread of the virus before it’s too late.

Launch Housing support workers are on the front line doing this urgent work, which could be the difference between life and death for hundreds of Melburnians who are without a home.

Now is the time to pull together during this unprecedented state of emergency. We can’t do this on our own. We need your help.

Help us, help those without a home during the COVID-19 emergency.

Give now.
