About the Organisation
Launch Housing aims to end homelessness in Melbourne and lead the way for other cities around the world.
Helping over 18,000 people annually and with 380 staff in 14 locations and with a turnover of $75 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 changing community attitudes and the stubborn persistence that some level of homelessness is inevitable and therefore tolerable.
Launch Housing is entering an exciting period of renewal with unprecedented levels of government investment accelerating implementation of Launch Housing’s new high-impact strategy that aims to reverse the rate of street homelessness in Melbourne, and beyond.
