Sam talking to a renter in Prahran

A Home for All

Everyone should have a safe place to call home.

Yet here in Victoria, more than 125,000 people are waiting for public housing. Many have been waiting more than 10 years. Thanks to the government’s neglect, on any given night almost 25,000 Victorians are homeless, including right here in Prahran. 

The Greens and I have called on the Victorian Labor Government to invest in a big build of public housing – enough to meet demand so that we don’t have thousands of people on years-long waiting lists.

You can read our full housing plan here.

I will keep fighting to make sure everyone in our community has a safe place to call home. Please join me to help push the Victorian Government further and faster on ending homelessness.
