Our Impact

our-impactWe believe everyone has the right to a safe and secure home! It is estimated that 1 in 200 people will be homeless tonight. We need to take action now!

  • Over 30% of those who are homeless are aged under 24 years.
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians make up 25% of all homeless people.
  • The major reasons people are homeless are:
    • Family and relationship issues (34%)
    • Financial difficulties (28%)
    • A lack of affordable and appropriate housing (19%).

Indigo Junction is committed to advocate for change to make homelessness history and we are already working towards this. In 2015/16 our impact was far reaching and key highlights include:

Young People

  • 43 young people were provided with housing, support and education
  • 9 young people leaving care were provided intensive support and housing through our LIFT program

Families

  • 30 families including 58 children under 17 years, were provided housing, support and education.
