Together, we turn houses into homes
Our Make a House a Home Fund gives vulnerable Victorians everything they need to feel at home when moving into their new house. It might be a bed or a microwave, or help with the first month’s rent as they settle into their new life.
This is what we achieved since 2018 …
We helped more than 500 people
Through the Make A House A Home fund, we supported 530 people to turn their houses into homes; and it’s getting more, every day.
167 clients received household goods such as dishes, pots and pans, or cutlery.
Our Make A House A Home fund helped 94 clients pay bonds and rent for their new housing.
87 clients were able to purchase white goods such as a fridge and a washing machine.
Beds and bedding
56 people could buy beds and bedding thanks to the Make A House A Home fund. Now they can finally sleep in their own beds!
39 clients have received financial support to purchase a kitchen table, a couch and other furniture.
36 clients bought laptops, phones, radios and TVs. Many haven’t been able to afford any electronic devices for years.
26 clients bought heaters, kettles, and other appliances to settle into their homes. Now they can have a cuppa every morning.
