Which will support the 6,000 young people experiencing homelessness tonight. In fact...Every. Single. Night.
The more money we raise, the more young people we can support through our range of services and locations – increasing our impact and moving even closer to our goal to put youth homelessness to bed.
You helped us raise just over $1 million from Sleep at the 'G 2018, meaning that we were able to build our world-first hub integrating support services, education and crisis accommodation right here in Melbourne’s CBD.
But we're just getting started.
Can you imagine being a teenager with no safe place to call home? Being homeless is traumatic – and often dangerous.
Yet it’s the reality for over 6,000 young people in Victoria right now. They have no secure place of their own, and are often forced into unsafe housing, someone’s couch – or in some cases, out on the street. In one of the world’s most liveable cities, we know you’ll agree this is not ok.
Sleep at the ’G is your chance to do something about it!
Melbourne City Mission supports over 5,000 people a week. But with over 6,000 young people homeless in our city, too many are falling through the gaps… and the consequences are devastating. We can reach them all.
This year our seventh annual mass sleepover at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) takes place on Thursday 16 May 2019.
Hosted by Melbourne City Mission, it’s made possible through the amazing support of our major partner, Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC).
