Live Life Her Challenge 2024

Join us in making a difference for homeless women over 55 by taking part in the Live Like Her Challenge this September 2024. By spending one night living in your car, you’ll contribute to funding The Forgotten Women’s mission to provide suitable housing for women over 55 experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

In greater Brisbane, over 700 women over 55 are currently facing hardships. Referred to as the hidden homeless, these women may be living in cars, couch surfing, or facing threats of violence, among other challenges.

Can you take on the Challenge?

Register today for the Live Like Her Challenge, where you’ll park and sleep at the Skygate multi-deck car park, Brisbane Airport, on Thursday, September 5th, 2024.

Your registration fee of $60 per individual is included in the minimum fundraising target of $500, and you can form teams with multiple cars and individuals.

Gather your team today, as one night of your life can help provide a home. 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.
