Launch Housing and SHAPE

At Launch Housing, we work closely with businesses to find bespoke solutions that create an impact. We know that ending homelessness is a complex challenge that can’t be tackled alone – so partnerships are key.  

Thanks to our partners SHAPE, residents at Launch Housing Southbank have a greater sense of physical comfort after SHAPE generously refurbished all 46 rooms – rooms that hadn’t been updated in 23 years. 

SHAPE first partnered with Launch Housing in 2020, donating repurposed furniture to our spaces via ReSHAPE.  

Since then, our partnership has gone from strength to strength. 

SHAPE visited our Southbank site and after a conversation with Launch Housing staff, the idea was sparked to complete a full refurbishment of all rooms and a refresh of communal areas.  

Thanks to the incredible work of SHAPE and 37 subcontractors and suppliers, more than $700,000 in time, skill and materials was so generously given to this project since 2021 

By providing our clients with fresh, modern, lovingly created spaces, we’re able to provide shelter for people experiencing homelessness in a way that’s dignified. 

Yassin, Site Manager at Launch Housing Southbank, says it doesn’t go unnoticed. 

“These spaces not only offer physical comfort but also send a powerful message to those going through tough times – that they are deserving of care and support.”  

The partnership between Launch Housing and SHAPE Australia shows what can be achieved when we come together, leveraging each other’s strengths to end homelessness.
