We are fundraising for a women's and children's sleepbus
Successfully raising money to build a sleepbus for both men and women. Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre is now fundraising for a pink sleepbus. This will be a service specifically for women only (and their children) who are experiencing homelessness.
With the dramatic increase of women (and their children) ending up on the streets due to financial strife, family breakdown and other factors, sleepbus will launch a 'pink' sleepbus. This will be a service specifically for women (and their children).
Although our traditional service can cater for both male and female guests of all ages, there is a need for women to be in a female only environment for their own peace of mind and mental health. sleepbus recognises this and because our model can adapt quickly to meet the needs of people forced onto the streets, a pink sleepbus was a no brainer.
The cost of homelessness to the community is significant – people experiencing homelessness often interact with multiple local government and non-government organisations with an estimated cost up to $35,000 per annum per person (based on sleeping rough costing).
