Meet Susan

Susan became homeless after her husband died and for 10 years slept under bridges and in parks across the Brisbane area.

Susan had been offered housing placements previously, but had turned them down saying there were ‘people who need it more’. In 2021, our Street to Home team finally convinced Susan to accept a placement, and she moved in a few weeks prior to Christmas. 

“Thanks to the support of the network behind StreetSmart’s Making-a-Home initiative, she did not just move into ‘housing’. Susan moved in with everything she needed to make a home. This included a refrigerator, a vacuum cleaner, a toaster, bedding, and more. 

The continued contributions from the StreetSmart’s Making-a-Home initiative have made an impact on Susan’s life and the lives of other individuals and families by enabling them to move into a permanent home and emergency accommodation with a housing set up. Together, we can end homelessness in Brisbane.”
