500 Lives 500 Homes

500 Lives 500 Homes

Is a three year campaign to break the cycle of homelessness for families, young people and adults in our community who are homeless or vulnerably housed. By getting to know each person by name and surveying their individual health, housing and support needs, we can respond in the best way to each person and prioritise the most vulnerable people who are sleeping rough, or who are at risk of death.

500 Lives 500 Homes is a meaningful collaboration between government, community and business. The campaign is connected with the Queensland Government’s Homeless to Housing Strategy 2020 to deliver a coordinated approach to ending homelessness in Brisbane.

Volunteers and local agencies will survey

families, young people and adults in the Brisbane Local Government Area who are homeless or vulnerably housed. With an ongoing commitment to work closely together, partner agencies will quickly and flexibly respond to the housing, health and support needs of individuals and families, grounded in the evidence gathered during the Brisbane registry fortnight.
