Margot Rottem House, City of Melton
A brand new, custom-built five-bedroom home in the City of Melton has been unveiled in a collaboration between some of Australia’s leading organisations to support homeless women and children, particularly those escaping family violence.
The Victorian Homeless Fund project was constructed by Dennis Family Homes on land donated to Women’s Property Initiatives by the Scalzo Family. Generous funding support was also provided by the Lendlease Future Steps program, ISPT and The Bourne Foundation.
The home which has been named Margot Rottem House in honour of a founding member of The Victorian Homeless Fund, will be managed by The Women’s Property Initiatives, an organisation providing accommodation for women and children at risk of homelessness as well as access to support networks and ongoing advocacy.
