The threat of homelessness can happen to anyone
What would you do? Your child plasters poo on the wall. (Not because he’s naughty, but because he is challenged by severe autism.) Your partner is so badly hurt in a car accident, needs 40 specialists - and in so much pain they can no longer work. You owe the power company thousands. Any day now your family will be homeless.
It only takes a couple of things to go wrong in life for income to stop. For Jodie, it was when she had to become a full-time carer for her husband after his car accident, and her young son with severe autism. Jodie told us:
"There are so many days I do not have a single cent to my name. There’s a lot of saying ‘no’ to your children because of what you cannot give them. It's heartbreaking"
Families like Jodie's need urgent help with power bills, fresh food and groceries, and financial counselling.
YES, I will help protect a family like Jodie's from homelessness.
