Homelessness can affect anyone.
It also takes many forms – living in overcrowded conditions, sleeping on a friend’s couch or roughing it in your car.
The Salvation Army doesn’t just offer people in need emergency accommodation or a roof over their heads. Through our network of services such as counselling, legal aid, domestic violence support and lifestyle programs we aim to bring people back into society, strong and equipped to fulfil a valued role in the community.
It’s only when a person has a safe and stable place to live that they have an opportunity to make positive steps towards independence. So alongside our homeless services is access to training to improve employment outcomes, working with financial counsellors to develop a budget to cover living costs, and accessing support to find long-term secure accommodation.
Each week we assist more than 2,000 people with accommodation.
