On 21 October 2023, we held a fundraising event overlooking the Brisbane skyline for a great cause: ending homelessness, a person at a time.
Funds raised at this year’s event will help us to:
- Provide additional support and services to our tenants to improve health and wellbeing
- Address the needs of individuals facing chronic homelessness or those at risk of homelessness through supportive housing
- Support refugee and asylum seeker individuals and families to secure housing and link with support services
- Respond to the housing needs of women and families escaping domestic and family violence with a safe and affordable place to call home
We’d also like to give special thanks to our major sponsors:
And a huge thank you to MoFos Bar and Bistro again this year for letting use your beautiful event space to host our event.

About Common Ground Queensland
We believe that everyone has the right to live in dignity and have a safe place to call home! Our mission is to END HOMELESSNESS, a person at a time, within the communities in which we operate.
CGQ is the first supportive housing project in Queensland. Supportive housing offers long term, safe, affordable housing that is intentionally linked to dedicated, tailored support services. This approach is a solution that can end the cycle of homelessness for the most vulnerable individuals and families in our community. It offers a permanent alternative to rough sleeping, couch surfing and crisis accommodation.
For over a decade, CGQ has maintained a successful record of providing homes for more than 400 people, including over 50 children, through its three main programs: Brisbane Common Ground, Supportive Housing for Families, and Community Supportive Housing.
The combination of safe, permanent and affordable housing and ongoing support services is the first step to stability. It allows people to deal more effectively with the challenges that had previously hindered their ability to sustain a tenancy. Tenants are empowered to maximise their opportunities for an independent and healthy life.
