Espero Fund has provided start up funding for a pilot project which matches homeless people and children with empty hotel rooms in Sydney or Melbourne.

Each night more than 100,000 Australians experience homelessness – around 20,000 are young children under 12 years of age. At the same time, each night in Australia more than 20,000 unsold hotel rooms remain empty.

The Angel Place Project is a not-for-profit social enterprise whose vision is to align the supply of unsold hotel rooms with the needs of those at risk of homelessness. The project will establish a pilot hotel – Angel Place – in either inner-city Sydney or Melbourne, where each prepaid room will release a room at Angel Place for someone in need. Your decision to purchase a room at Angel Place will give hope to the homeless. The primary target group which Angel Place Project aims to assist is families with young children.
