You can still help put youth homelessness to bed
Due to the uncertainty of COVID and risk surrounding large events, MCM decided not to proceed with Sleep At The ’G in 2022.
Our work to support young people experiencing homelessness still continues. If you wish to get involved and raise money, simply host your own fundraising activity on a day that suits you.

Homelessness crisis: Urgent action is required
Homelessness is usually a result of other forms of disadvantage building to a crisis. Family violence, abuse and mental health are the major drivers into homelessness for young people. But once they become homeless, they face even more dangerous situations; sleeping rough, in unsafe housing or couch surfing. The longer homelessness lasts, the harder it is to for a young person to rebuild their lives. Homelessness becomes a cycle – surviving from one day to the next.
There are more than 6,000 young people experiencing the trauma of homelessness every night in Victoria. Hear from some of the people we’re supporting to understand the importance of our work and why we need your help.
