Alice Springs Mens Hostel

Red Shield Hostel

This service exists to provide accommodation for homeless men, without discrimination.  In the provision of this service we aim to build supportive relationships with our clients in a positive environment in accordance with Christian faith and practice.  We aim to empower clients to make lifestyle choices that will enhance their quality of life and assist them to live independently.

Services provided:

  • Accommodation, meals and support to homeless men
  • Counselling
  • Referrals to appropriate services for assistance
  • Support to clients living in the community

We have 21 beds for young men over age 18, catering in particular for those with mental health issues. The accommodation is meant to be short-term so we endeavour to help them to find more stable accommodation if they wish to remain in Alice Springs.

We provide 3 meals a day and provide support through referrals to employment agencies, medical treatment, counselling and the Positive Lifestyle course where it is appropriate.

Most of the accommodation is single room with shared bathroom facilities. We also have some single rooms with ensuites.
