WOMEN AND HOMELESSNESS
At our September meeting we had Mary-Ann Wright is the Deputy Chairperson of Housing for the Aged Action Group.
Maryanne shared her life journey, which ultimately led her to be a recipient of HAAG services. Their assistance in navigating her through this tough period in her life ensured dramatic improvement. HAAG receive funding from state and federal governments as well as philanthropic donations. They do not provide housing, rather their staff work with clients to ensure they can receive safe, affordable housing. 165,000 women aged 45-55 and 240,000 women 55+ are currently at risk of homelessness in Australia.
