Homelessness is increasing and out of control but not everyone is roofless

One of the projects we are developing is Homelessness but this will be restricted to registered people.

The new project will be advised later this year. If you are interested please contact us to receive an email update. Meanwhile here is a list of various types of homelessness.  For example Group 10 describes domestic violence victims and or their children are technically homeless because they have nowhere else to go and living under a threat of harm.

Also Society doesn't see many homeless people and base their image on  those usually  roofless (category 1.10) seen  looking like drunken tramps.

Mothers and children sleeping in their car, Business persons going through a tough time, Rape victims without support often find themselves out of work and homeless.
