The notion of homelessness can conjure up images of someone sleeping rough on a park bench or lining up at a street van.
These people who are homeless are more visible, however they are just the tip of the iceberg of the homelessness crisis across southern Queensland.
Today, there are approximately as many women experiencing homelessness as there are men in our community. But they are largely invisible. They have to be, to survive.
Women who are sleeping rough are far more vulnerable than men…vulnerable to violence and to exploitation.
