Everyone man, woman and child shares the human right to adequate housing. A decent standard of housing fulfills physical needs by providing security and shelter from weather and climate. It fulfills psychological needs by providing a sense of personal space and privacy. It fulfills social needs by providing a gathering area and communal space for families. Adequate housing helps us to feel safe, at peace and supports a sense of belonging.

The Salvation Army is supporting people to find freedom from homelessness, and enjoy the freedom that comes from being securely placed in a healthy home environemnt. As Dorothy says "There's no place like home".
