Hobart Street 2 Home

In Tasmania our Street2Home homeless worker Ebony helps the growing number of people sleeping rough in Hobart. Street2Home assists people who would not otherwise use mainstream services,

or may have been barred from them, for reasons including mental health issues, substance use, and physical or intellectual disabilities. As well as searching out the homeless wherever they are living,

Ebony frequents places where they may go, like soup kitchens, food vans or drop-in centres. 


We work with other community groups like psychologists and housing services to create a case plan for each person. We also develop relationships and offer training to people in the community who might see people sleeping rough, for instance city council workers, gardeners and police, so they can feel empowered to refer people to us.
