Emergency housing for evicted Refugees

About HUSK
HUSK is a small grass-roots collective that provides housing, advocacy, and case support for people experiencing homelessness or domestic violence.
They primarily support women, transgender people, and families, and many of the people who they support are First Nations, migrants and/or refugees.
Their collective is entirely volunteer-run, with the people who are directly experiencing homelessness or domestic violence forming an integral part of our volunteer base. This allows all their money to go directly to the people HUSK are supporting, in the form of rent, bills, medical expenses, food, legal fees, and other essential needs.

Their latest campaign: With no prior notice, hundreds of refugees have been moved out of community detention onto a temporary bridging visa. The reason given for this sudden change in their circumstances was budget constraints.
These people, including a number of families, have less than three weeks to find a job and a house. While many of them are eager to work and have done their best to find their own homes, they have no rental or work history in Australia and are constrained by a limited six month working visa, all in the midst of a pandemic and unemployment crisis. The bridging visa is not a step forwards, at the end of the six month period, they face returning to community, onshore or offshore detention. HUSK are opening additional houses to support refugee families who are now experiencing homelessness due to this sudden visa change.
HUSK are asking for regular monthly donations of $25 or more to support the ongoing housing and legal costs for these families.
