Viv’s Place, Australian-first housing for women and children, officially open
Launch Housing, in partnership with Uniting Vic.Tas, generous donors and the Victorian Government, has welcomed its first families to their new home, Viv’s Place, an Australian-first apartment building tailored to women and children escaping family and domestic violence and homelessness.
Family and domestic violence is the single biggest driver of homelessness in Australia. Viv’s Place helps solve this problem by providing safe, purpose built and beautifully designed housing for families, along with on-site 24-7 support services.
From the first day families move in, they have a safe and permanent home to recover and rebuild, access to the support services they need and the opportunity to participate in the local community.
Major Parties Involved:
- Uniting Vic.Tas
- Victorian Government
- Significant number of philanthropic donors
