Housing support when you need it.
All Australians deserve access to safe and stable housing – it’s what underpins functional families and communities.
Outreach provides real help for those who are vulnerable, at risk of homelessness or have tenancy issues.
Our three key outreach programs include Community Reconnections Program (CRP), Housing Support for the Aged (HSAP) and SAVVI Supporting Connections.
CRP and HSAP provide short-term case management, support people to secure long-term sustainable and affordable housing and link people to appropriate services.
SAVVI Supporting Connections assists vulnerable residents living in Supported Residential Services. The program is aimed at supporting residents to access health and community services to meet individual needs.
