One of the headline goals in the Australian Government’s White paper 'The Road Home' is to offer supported accommodation to all rough sleepers who want it by 2020.

  • Project dates: 2014
  • Grants and funding: Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs

The Streets to Home program is being implemented in each jurisdiction in order to advance this objective. The program is designed to assist people who have been sleeping rough to make the transition to sustainable supported housing. In Victoria, a consortium consisting of HomeGround Services, The Salvation Army Adult Services and The Salvation Army Crisis Services have been funded for three years to assist approximately 300 chronically homeless people into stable, sustainable housing. This project will undertake the evaluation of the Streets to Home initiative in Victoria.
