24/7 Homelessness Program
More than 300 people have been assisted in the past 18 months, with 3,120 calls received by the crisis response team
24/7 Homelessness Program is a 24/7 Community Response Team capable of providing both a mobile and centre-based response to homeless crisis situations in the Melbourne CBD and surrounding suburbs. This service can be accessed via a 24 hour telephone contact system connected to a mobile response team, which will be based at the Salvation Army's Project 614 at 69 Bourke Street, Melbourne.
The needs of those experiencing homelessness who are in the city or gravitating to the city require a service that will link them into support that will meet their particular needs. 24/7 Homelessness Program will be a point of contact and resource to assist in connecting with other Melbourne based services; including Melbourne Citymission's Frontyard Youth Services and the St Kilda Crisis Centre.
The success of 24/7 Homelessness Program lies not only with the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation and Project 614, but also the community as a whole, as we work together to assist those experiencing homelessness. 24/7 Homelessness Program Home will become an integral part of the homeless services provided in Melbourne and will work with the already existing key services to provide an integrated and partnership based service.
