Your Impact

Your generosity will help young people like Luca, Ana and Shane find a place to call home.

By raising vital funds you'll be supporting MCM
to help put youth homelessness to bed.

Young people experiencing homelessness are among the most vulnerable in our community.
With your help we will provide:

A safe place to sleep

MCM provides young people with a safe place to stay with their own room, bathroom facilities, and food. Across Melbourne we operate emergency accommodation from five sites, and medium-term accommodation from four sites.

Someone to listen and provide guidance
We offer more than a bed. Our services offer healing-oriented care and support (including mental health, family reconciliation, drug and alcohol counselling), for young people who are exhausted and scared, to give them a chance to get back on their feet.

Support to navigate their future, their way
We assist young people to break through the barriers of disadvantage to stay in, or re-connect with education, and to gain skills for employment, so they can become independent and reach for their dreams.

After all, there are more than 6,000 young people experiencing the trauma of homelessness every night in Victoria.
