Every night in Victoria, more than 7,600 young people are without a home. Sleeping rough. Couch surfing. Bedding down where they can. It’s happening in the CBD, in regional, and rural Victoria. Together, we can break the cycle of youth homelessness this Christmas. Please give now.Donate now

There's never a single, simple reason that someone becomes homeless, and it's not enough to just put a roof over someone's head. MCM gives people experiencing homelessness the chance to create a better life. With your help, we can provide:
MCM provides young people with a safe place to stay with their own room, bathroom facilities, and food. Across Melbourne we operate emergency accommodation from five sites, and medium-term accommodation from four sites.
We assist young people to break through the barriers of disadvantage to stay in, or re-connect with education, and to gain skills for employment, so they can become independent and reach for their dreams.
We offer more than a bed. Our services offer healing-oriented care and support (including mental health, family reconciliation, drug and alcohol counselling), for young people who are exhausted and scared, to give them a chance to get back on their feet.
Leaving a gift in your Will can open a world of opportunities for communities in need. Here's how to update your Will and leave a lasting legacy.
