Transitional Housing Services work to secure and sustain affordable long term housing for homeless people. This is achieved through Initial Assessment & Planning, Tenancy Administration and Family Violence Private Rental Brokerage Program.
Initial Assessment and Planning (IAP) explores your current housing situation, together with options to secure affordable long term housing.
The IAP process seeks to resolve the immediate housing needs of homeless people in the first instance, and then put in place support and links that will assist in providing people the means to both secure and sustain long term housing.
This is a confidential and non-judgemental process.
