Men, Women and Families Homelessness Service
Our service assists men, women and families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness including women and women with children affected by domestic and family violence. We provide client centred homelessness support services including prevention and early intervention (for those at risk of homelessness), rapid rehousing, intensive response for clients with complex needs and crisis and transitional response. Our service has a strong focus on services for families or individuals who identify as Aboriginal and for people who are from a culturally and linguistically diverse background. We assist men, women, young people, and families.
We can assist with:
Short Term Crisis (Women's Refuge) or Transitional Accommodation
Client Focused Case Management
Education & Awareness Programs
Early Intervention Support
Services for women and women with children
The refuge provides supported accommodation for women and children who are homeless or escaping domestic violence.
Services for men and families
Accommodation for single men and men with families is sought through temporary accommodation options through our local social housing providers.
How do I make contact for accommodation/support
If you find yourself in a crisis you can be referred by other agencies and/or by contacting us by phone yourself and speaking with our central intake workers. Central Intake will complete an assessment to best assess your current needs and to make a appropriate referral.
Staff are highly trained and qualified to provide advice and support in your time of need!
