Homelessness Support Services
Our homelessness support services aim to assist the people we support to connect with a wider service network and address issues that contribute to homelessness.
We deliver support through a range of interventions that provide outreach and intensive case management to people sleeping in public places and others at risk of homelessness.
Our services focus on the intensive case management which aim to engage to help you to re-establish connections that will assist you to find somewhere to stay while taking steps to finding a permanent place to call home so that you can get on with your life. Domestic and family violence places many people at risk of homelessness as does financial problems, unemployment and mental illness.
Our message at Life Without Barriers is that domestic and family violence is not acceptable in our community and our accommodation support services will help women, children and young people affected by this situation. We are committed to doing everything we can to help people at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness and we will continue to advocate for more affordable accommodation options.
