Jack from Frankston
This week was National Homelessness Week, which serves as an important reminder of the serious issue of homelessness in our community.
On Monday, I shared the story of Jack, a young man from Frankston who was just 18 when a family breakdown left him homeless.
I told his story to bring attention to the fact we do not have enough crisis accommodation here in Dunkley.
Sadly Jack's story isn't unique, but this week I reaffirmed my commitment to working with all levels of government to provide emergency accommodation for young people in the Frankston area.
