2022 Homelessness Week’s theme this year is ‘We need a Plan’, which is evident as awareness is raised about the 116,000 Australians who are homeless at any given night.


Sydney’s Jewish House knows is that the best ideas can only be executed if there are two elements – a realistic plan and collaboration between those who can bring that plan to life.

Jewish House continues to use technology to help solve the issue of homelessness through two key initiatives, its MEND app, and its  Couch Surfers platform.

The technology being used ensures plans will work when data and innovation are the foundation of collaborative efforts in helping those in Australia struggling with homelessness.

Equally important is that Jewish House learns from other countries and technological innovations that are solving the complex issue of Homelessness.

Jewish House aims to use the technology available in a way that actually shows tangible results so that Australia can start to move forward as a country when it comes to the very real issue of Homelessness.

As a service that is helping keep over 1,000 people off the streets every year, Jewish House aims to collaborate with key bodies such as the police, health, community, social and religious organisations. No entity can operate well as an island, so collaborating together will bring JH closer to a reality where well-organised plans are able to result in change.

The Australian Government provides many critical services and needed funding for many of us fighting these battles, but without collaboration across these great services, both state and country-wide, it is difficult to have the transparency needed to understand how all components work together and what data can be identified to solve better the issues that collectively contribute to our current inability to solve the issue of homelessness.

This Homelessness Week, Jewish House encourages all to use the technology available and make a plan to work together in collaboration to see a change in the lives of the many Australians who experience homelessness.
