Our homelessness support services in South Australia and Western Australia aim to assist the people we support to connect with a wider service network and address issues that contribute to homelessness.

About our homelessness support services

With many people doing it tough, we're doing everything we can to provide support and find accommodation for people who are homeless or at risk of being homeless.
We know how easy it is to end up homeless - many people across our neighbourhoods do not know where they will be sleeping tonight.
There are many factors that can contribute to homelessness. Domestic and family violence place many people at risk of homelessness, as do financial problems, unemployment and mental illness.
Our services include assertive outreach, intensive case management support and residential programs.
These services aim to help you to re-establish connections that will assist you to find somewhere to stay while taking steps to find a permanent place to call home, so you can get on with your life.
