A shocking new statistic has come through, revealing that Shepparton has the highest homelessness rate out of any regional town in Victoria.  

Josiah & Elly shared this news on the show today, calling for the State Government to take action.  

"Something has to be done because that's a terrible statistic to have," Josiah said. 

This statistic was revealed via a new homelessness heat map, showing Shepparton to have the 21st highest amount of homeless people of ANY Victorian Local Government area!

A staggering 372 people were known to be homeless in 2016.

"Considering there's only 55,000 people in Shepparton, it's still quite a high number", Elly said.  

Beyond Housing CEO Celia Adams says it reveals the extent of the homelessness situation in the Goulburn Valley.
