Mitchell and Max

Please help break the cycle of homelessness for Mitchell and Max.

Removed from his family home when he was 10, Mitchell experienced horrific abuse throughout his childhood. He spent his early 20's living in squats, couch-surfing and 'rough sleeping' on the streets. It was during this time, he found Max – a little beagle pup. Mitchell often felt that while people walking past seemed to look right through him, they often smiled at Max. When COVID hit, Mitchell was offered hotel accommodation and he was able to bring Max with him. For over a year, the pair felt were safe, with MCM case workers and health professionals providing support. Through the care and support of MCM staff and the generosity of people like you, Mitchell started to feel like he mattered – for the first time in his life. At first, he didn’t feel worthy of help. He didn’t even feel life was worth living. But with support from kind people like you – who gave him a safe place to sleep, and help to rebuild his life – Riley kicked his addiction and found himself work. Now he’s back home with his siblings and mum. Sadly, Riley is one of the ‘lucky’ ones. There are thousands of young Victorians like him who have nowhere safe to call home. They’re facing huge challenges, including family violence and a severe shortage of affordable housing. But you can help change that.

Mitchell and Max

At 24, Mitchell had become one of the visibly homeless you might see on the streets. Max was always by his side. People walking past seemed to look right through him but they often had a smile for Max.
