Homelessness

Assistance with care and housing

If you, or someone you know, has fallen on tough times, we’re here to help you get through it. We support seniors who may be experiencing financial pressures and need a place to stay or other support.

We help people over the age of 60 (or over 50 years of age for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Elders) who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of becoming homeless. We can also help if you’re renting on a low income or living in housing that doesn’t feel secure.
