Home_Share_Committee_SF_SepHome Share Melbourne is a new project that takes the homeshare model and extends it beyond aged care into the fight against homelessness. The pilot program starts this month in the City of Port Phillip, and we were delighted to see some really thoughtful coverage of the idea in Sharna De Lacy’s in-depth piece for the StreetSmart Australia website. We highly recommend everyone read the article!

In other exciting news, Home Share Melbourne has also been nominated for the Victorian Government Pick My Project program, providing a fantastic opportunity to kickstart the initative. Pick My Project is a community grant program with at least $1m in funding available in each metro and regional area. It is the first program of its kind in Victoria, offering Victorians an opportunity to make their community an even better place to live by voting for the projects they’d like to see receive funding.

HANZA is thrilled that Home Share Melbourne has been accepted onto the list for the Inner Melbourne metro region, and we encourage everyone to vote here!
