Live Life Her Challenge 2023

To help change the lives of homeless women over 55, nearly 115 cars and over 175 individuals came together to take on the second Live Like Her Challenge in September 2023. By living in our cars for one night, we were able to raise over $245,000 to support The Forgotten Women’s mission to provide fit–for–purpose housing for women over 55 who are experiencing homelessness. This event marked a significant step towards providing safe and secure housing for these women.

Thank you to all who joined us, fundraised, and supported our first Live Like Her Challenge, especially our generous event sponsors. We could not have done this without you.

As we look ahead to 2024, we’re excited about the continued growth and impact we can achieve. In greater Brisbane right now, there are more than 700 women doing it tough.

Watch this space for more information on the Live Like Her Challenge 2024 as we strive to provide safe housing for homeless women over 55. 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.
