"Some days I amaze myself, other days I put my keys in the fridge."
So much fun talking to the founder of ShareAbode, Wilhelmina Ford.
After struggling as a single mum to find rental accommodation, she realised there was such a need in Australia to set up something to help single parents find share accommodation at no costs.
She has poured so much of her own money into this rapidly growing platform, but is really looking for the support of us now to help keep it growing.
Sitting at a rate of 20 to 25 percent, a 2017 report from the University of Melbourne put the likelihood of child poverty in single-parent families as 'very high', significantly higher than the rate of 10% in the wider community.
"The idea is that two single parents sharing a home having the financial benefits of married couples, are afforded more free time, greater access to opportunity, and the security of knowing their children are safe, their bills are paid and their savings of time and money and growing."
Willo is an inspirational lady, truly making a difference, and living her life to the fullest. She shares so much wisdom on how to grab everything life has to offer.
