Whether you think of housing as a prevention or a cure for homelessness, it is undisputable that having a stable form of shelter is imperative.
But making sure that everyone has a house is no easy feat.
Australia is currently in the middle of a housing crisis.
There is a lack of affordable housing and according to the experts there has been a lack of investment in public housing by successive governments over decades.
So how do we increase the capacity of affordable housing?
