Crisis & Transitional Accommodation

If you’re homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, our Crisis & Transitional Accommodation team is here to help you, providing supported accommodation, as well as long-term housing solutions.

Homelessness can affect anyone - young people, single adults, even families. We therefore provide a holistic service. This ranges from emergency short-term accommodation that meets an immediate need, to assistance with securing long-term housing that supports independence, which might include financial counselling.

Our service offers:

  • Support through individually tailored case plans
  • Help with accessing and maintaining public, community and private housing
  • Assistance with access to Department of Housing bond assistance and other support programs
  • Access to family relationship support
  • Tenancy education with a focus on rights and obligations
  • Practical information and advice on accessing and applying for rentals
  • Support and advocacy when dealing with local real estate agencies
  • Access to emergency relief where necessary
  • Assistance with accessing income support and developing budgeting skills
  • Practical and emotional support
  • Support with developing social and positive peer support networks
  • Transport to keep essential appointments
  • Help with engaging with education, training and employment opportunities
  • Referrals to a range of specialist support services
