Melbourne Homeless Collective (MHC) operates three key projects within Victoria. Blanket Melbourne provides warm life saving sleeping bags and blankets to rough sleepers. Melbourne Period Project is our largest project providing sanitary items and toiletries to many women across Victoria who have fled and are homeless due to domestic abuse. The School Project provides essential school items and backpacks to the children of these families so they can continue their education and stay in school. We provide all new items to more than 50 organisations across Melbourne and have thus far supported around 150 children to continue their schooling in 2017 alone. Each year we provide thousands of Period Packs to women experiencing homelessness so they're not forced to steal or go without essential items.
