Breaking the cycle of homelessness in Queensland

17 June 2021

Queenslanders are losing their rentals, their homes, couch surfing, or sleeping out on the streets, in a car or cardboard box.
Thousands of Queenslanders, including children, are sleeping rough for the first time ever.
Unfortunately, homelessness has become a terrifying reality for Queenslanders today.
We’re urging corporate Queensland to come together to lead with empathy
and help break the cycle of homelessness in our state.
One night of your life will be life-changing for so many.

Mathew Kratiuk braved the Vinnies CEO Sleepout and shared his own experience of homelessness. Mathew experienced what he describes as “the perfect family” until his parents separated when he was 12….he eventually ended up alone on the street.
