    • Outreach support

    Working in partnership with Mission Australia and St Vincent de Paul Society we operate the Western Sydney Single Men’s Homeless program. This incorporates crisis accommodation (from Hope Hostel) and transitional accommodation and provides outreach services using skilled case workers provided by our partners.

    Operating within the Parramatta and Cumberland LGA’s, support is provided by outreaching to partner services such as Housing NSW and through external visits, assisting men where they may be living. This includes rough sleepers and squats.

    The Men’s transitional program is a partnership with Evolve Housing and our Uniting Hospitality property management group. UnitingHope is committed to the ‘continuum of care’ model, which is demonstrated in the relationship between our Crisis Service and key agencies such as Area Health and Community Corrections.

    Men who need continuing support, after exiting the crisis service may be offered extended transitional support (subject to vacancies) for up to twelve months or until specialised accommodation becomes available.

    Women’s and Families Services

    UnitingHope provides a range of services for women and children including those experiencing domestic and family violence, or at risk of becoming homeless.

    Throughout all of our services we encourage and support partnerships within the community for stronger and broader service delivery.
