We're delighted to welcome renowned author and speaker, Chris Lowney, to address a breakfast gathering on Monday 9 September for young professionals working within Catholic organisations, social services, missions and ministries who are interested in growing as a leader in this fast-paced, rapidly changing and complex 21st century.
Each Winter, on any night across Victoria around 1,100 homeless people including women, children, young and older people and people with disabilities have to “sleep rough” in city parks, car parks, bushland areas and coastal reserves. Our upcoming parish forum, 'Homelessness: Preparing for 2020' on Tuesday 24 September 2019 will bring together people to begin to prepare for next Winter, and to make the connections with other parishes, churches and groups that will make next year’s Winter Shelter a success in as many areas as can be reached. 
Only a long-term national strategy and a deep, non-partisan commitment from federal, state and territory governments will begin to address the chronic shortage of secure, affordable housing for low income Australians, including a significant number of older Australians. Speaking ahead of the launch of National Homelessness Week (4-10 August) in Hobart this morning, St Vincent de Paul National Council CEO Toby O’Connor repeated the Society’s call for a 30-year National Strategy.
We all have a role to play in raising awareness and doing what we can to assist those in need of housing. Homelessness Week 2019 (#HW2019), 4-10 August 2019, features the theme ‘Housing ends homelessness’ with a range of activities for people to be involved in.
