About the organisation

Organisation Name : People for Purpose for Launch Housing

Launch Housing wants to end homelessness in Melbourne and lead the way for other cities around the world to do the same.

Helping over 18,000 people annually and with 380 staff in 14 locations and with a turnover of $60 million, Launch Housing is of a size, yet nimble enough, to make a real impact on homelessness. The Board and Team at Launch Housing believe that homelessness is solvable but not without more homes nor changing community attitudes about the stubborn persistence that some level of homelessness is inevitable, and therefore tolerable.

Informed by consultants and critical friends, Launch Housing is entering an exciting period of renewal and will soon release a high-impact strategy that aims to reverse the rate of street homelessness in Melbourne, and beyond.
