Facing a housing crisis

Dealing with a housing crisis – needing help right now!

If you find yourself in crisis, with either no housing or facing the risk that you will very soon become homeless, WIRE's information booklet: Dealing with a housing crisis—needing help right now! is here for you.

This information booklet covers:

  • What to do if you are facing a crisis now
  • What to do if you are facing the risk of losing your house.

WIRE’s housing resources aim to help Victorian women understand and better navigate the housing system. They come in two handy booklets (each A5, 32 pages).

The second booklet: Finding your next home—looking past a housing crisis helps you look to your future home – and how to avoid having to face a housing crisis again.

WIRE’s housing resources aim to help women in Victoria understand and better navigate the housing system, and come in two handy booklets (Each A5, 32 pages each).
