Government Funding for Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation

There are over 18,000 homeless people in Melbourne. Over 200 of them are sleeping rough each night. We need to make a change to help these people. I believe that more government funding for Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation would make a positive change. Their foundation aims to prevent long term homelessness through early intervention housing support services, and increasing the supply of appropriate affordable housing.

I recently went to the city for a school excursion, it scared me how to see how many people are homeless and living rough in the Melbourne CBD. Teenagers are especially vulnerable due to domestic violence, mental health issues and high costs of living.  It was easy to imagine, with a bit of bad luck, that I or one of my friends could end up on the streets. If we don't do anything to provide early support to vulnerable people, the cycle of homelessness will continue.
