Centrecare’s Family Accommodation Service provides safe accommodation and support for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander families who are homeless or about to become homeless.

Are you:

  • seeking support and accommodation;
  • facing eviction and at risk of losing your home;
  • homeless and staying with family/friends or wherever you can;
  • having difficulty finding a home because of previous tenancy problems;
  • unable to access or afford private rental accommodation; and/or
  • struggling with your tenancy responsibilities?

If you answer “yes” to any of the above questions, then this service may be of help to you.

Centrecare’s Family Accommodation Service can support you to overcome the difficulties you may have had before in keeping a home. We will work with you, your family and extended family to develop a support plan that works for you. Ongoing support and accommodation however, will be conditional on meeting the terms of the support plan and tenancy agreement.

If accepted into this program you will receive:

  • accommodation with a tenancy agreement;
  • home visits every week, or more often if required to assist with your support plan;
  • counselling for yourself and other family members;
  • assistance with budgeting; and
  • referral to or help with accessing other agencies where required.
