About Us

Building Homes & Rebuilding Lives

Founded in the International Year of Shelter for the Homeless, our charity set out with a clear mission -To provide transitional and long-term accommodation for women and children escaping family violence.

Supported by the HIA, The Victorian Homeless Fund works closely with builders, philanthropists, councils and government agencies to turn unused residential land into family homes.

Once built these homes are transferred to the custodianship of not for profit community housing organisations like Wayss, Women’s Property Initiative, Salvation Army, Launch Housing, Wesley Central Mission.

With the help of many generous suppliers, volunteers and helpers along the way we have created stable and secure housing where families can create new beginnings.
