There are more than 105,000 Australians who find themselves homeless each night of the year. Just under half of these are women; a quarter are under the age of 18. Join us at the Vinnies Corporate and Community Sleepout on 15-August and experience what it is like to be homeless for a night.
Why we need your support
The 2017 Brisbane West Corporate & Community Sleepout will have a strong focus on women’s issues, driven by the deep and persistent needs of women in our community. Disadvantaged women, who are often single parents, can struggle with immensely complex structural, relational and personal issues, and we have seen a big increase in requests for emergency relief. The Sleepout’s awareness, education and fundraising campaign is dedicated to supporting and dignifying the most vulnerable women in our community.With your support we can continue to provide a hand up, not just a handout to assist homeless people every night.

You can help us reach our goal of raising $50,000. Register today as a team or individual and start fundraising. All funds you raise will go towards homeless services in the Brisbane West region.
