The Forgotten Women is a unique housing initiative for women over 55 years of age that is being delivered by Mangrove Housing*.  


Under The Forgotten Women initiative we will purchase a series of complexes to provide safe and affordable housing to homeless women over 55. Women over 55 are sadly, the fastest growing homeless population in Australia. More than 40,000 women in Queensland over the age of 65 are ‘at risk of homelessness and/ or doing it tough’. Alarmingly, recent forecasts predict this figure is set to double by 2036.


As a grassroots charity campaign, The Forgotten Women was developed with the mission of putting a roof over the heads of as many of these vulnerable women as possible. Our project will enable women over 55 to access secure, safe and affordable housing options.  

Without your support we cannot achieve this goal. 

Share our mission so we can help as many women as possible.
