On any given night in Australia, more than 44,500 people are homeless. Nearly half of these are under the age of 25. Surprisingly, there are more than 700 children in Bendigo who don’t have a stable living environment; they just need a home.
To combat this growing local issue, a group of Bendigo musicians have combined to form Bendigo for Homeless Youth and are using their talents to write, record and release a charity mini-album.
Proceeds from the album will go towards their goal of raising $100,000 to contribute towards a housing project being developed by locally based, community housing organisation Haven.
Almost 40 per cent of Haven’s clients are aged 30 or under, so money raised will go directly towards providing a long-term solution to the challenge of youth homelessness in the Bendigo community.
