Warrnambool's four rotary clubs are calling for caravans to be donated under a plan to tackle the region's alarming rate of homelessness.
Daybreak Rotary's community and service projects director Ian Harper said the vehicles were required to house displaced residents.
All rotary clubs in Warrnambool have partnered with Warrnambool City Council and Warrnambool Salvos to set up the Warrnambool Emergency Crisis Accommodation Project.

Mr Harper said the caravans would house people struggling to find temporary crisis accommodation.
"Presently there are high numbers of people who are or will soon be without even a basic roof over their heads," he said. "Just imagine if you or your family are in a situation with limited resources, and were today told to find alternative accommodation. There's effectively none available in Warrnambool."
Mr Harper said in these early stages of the project all rotary needed now was temporary access to a "reasonable number" of caravans.
Warrnambool City Council manager of strategic community planning and policy Ashish Sitoula said the accommodation would provide a safe space for people to live in until they found more permanent housing.
Those able to assist are encouraged to email email@example.com and provid their name, mobile number and information on the caravan. The caravans can be of any size or configuration.
