Working on the frontline of Victoria’s homelessness and Housing crisis we see first-hand the impacts of funding, community perceptions and industry voice.

We understand the importance of using our voice, experience and knowledge to shine a light on the issues facing Victorians’. We want to challenge any stereotypes.

Our continuous practice of listening and our years of lived experience mean our organisation has an empathy for the key issues, nuances and complexities within Victoria’s regions unlike any other. It’s important to us to share these learnings by showing the human story behind the statistics and help people understand the foundational benefit housing plays in people’s health, wellbeing and community connection.

How does Haven Home Safe Advocate?

We continue to use our voice to present new ideas, challenge existing concepts, and collaborate to advocate for a client-centred approach within the housing and homelessness sector.


With metropolitan capabilities and a regional focus, we bring a unique perspective and ensure that regional issues are part of the conversation in a sector challenged by increasing demand.


You will find our advocacy work in industry magazines and at conferences across Australia.


Working with local, state, and national media as well as our digital channels amplifies our advocacy work with a broader audience. We use these platforms to provide education and challenge stereotypes while shining a spotlight on issues of homelessness and housing.
