We work with Aboriginal men and women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and help them find and maintain long term stable housing.
Our Aboriginal-specific case management workers can help identify the barriers and challenges that are preventing an individual from finding a long term home. We assess each individual's accommodation and support needs and try to find solutions. We work in partnership with a range of Community Housing Organisations to achieve this.
