HoMie making a difference to Melbourne’s homeless

homie-melbourne

On any given night in Australia, 1 in 200 people are homeless. Almost half are under the age of 26.

A social enterprise called HoMie is working to reduce the number of people experiencing homelessness.

An Australia Post community grant will enable the enterprise to run an accredited employment training program next year.

Reporter Rochelle Kirkham spoke to HoMie co-founder Robbie Gillies about the initiative.
