Live Like Her Challenge 2022

To help change the lives of homeless women over 55, we are urging corporate Brisbane to come together to take on the Live Like Her Challenge this September 2022. By living in your car for one night you will help fund The Forgotten Women’s mission to provide fit-for-purpose housing for women over 55 years of age who are experiencing homelessness.

In greater Brisbane right now, more than 700 women over 55 years are doing it tough. Known as the hidden homeless, these women are either living in a car, couch surfing, living under the threat of violence and/or physically hiding.

Can you take on the Challenge?

Register today for the Live Like Her Challenge where you will park & sleep in a carpark at Eagle Farm on Thursday 8th September 2022 to raise funds and awareness for The Forgotten Women.

Registration is $200 per car which is included in the minimum fundraising target of $1000 required to attend the event. You can have up to 4 people per car/team.

One night of your life will help her home as everyone deserves to live with dignity and age securely in place.

About the forgotten women

Mangrove Housing is the founder of The Forgotten Women Project, an initiative committed to providing homes to homeless women over 55 years of age - the fastest growing homeless population in Australia today.

There are more than 40,000 Queensland women over the age of 55 who are doing it tough - suffering financial hardship driven by rising costs, lack of employment, limited superannuation and a lack of affordable housing options. Across the Greater Brisbane area there are over 600 homeless women over 55 .

Alarmingly this figure is predicted to more than double by 2036.

The Forgotten Women's mission is to provide fit-for-purpose housing for homeless women over 55 with individually tailored support. Everyone deserves to live with dignity and age securely in place.
