What we do

Imagine you're a teenager who had a disagreement with your parents and in a moment of anger and frustration run away from home. A prospect of a night on the streets feeling scared and vulnerable is daunting, where to from here? Or you find you are the victim of domestic violence and need to get out with your children, Where can you stay?
SOMEBODY'S CHILD aims to build emergency housing for such moments in life!
If we can provide a safe temporary shelter during these moments of uncertainty then just maybe, we can change the outcome to a more positive future than living on the streets.

How We Do It

We aim to raise enough funds to purchase sites and put up buildings. The use of these buildings will be to house people who are temporarily displaced and need a place to stay.
Somebody’s Child will ensure that the building satisfies all requirements and will use specialist skills of other charities to deliver their promise under a memorandum of understanding.
We strongly believe that the correct intervention within the first three days of leaving your home is critical in whether you survive or not. Having a safe place to sleep with helpful interaction will develop pathways out of homelessness.
Australia is a blessed country and no one should be homeless.
