Housing Support

Housing Support for people aged 18-65 years experiencing homelessness

Our Housing Support Service supports homeless people that are exiting National Affordable Housing Agreement (NAHA) services to live successfully in the community. MercyCare’s Housing Support Service is a free service for families or individuals aged 18-65 years old.

A Housing Support Worker can visit clients for a couple of hours a week and support the client and their family to find and keep a home. We can assist with rental resumes, referrals to services that help obtain furniture, bond assistance applications and advocate to the Department of Housing.

Housing Support Workers can also assist clients in maintaining their home by completing tenancy training, informing clients of the rights and responsibilities of tenants and landlord, keeping household costs down, and maintaining a positive relationship with the landlord and property maintenance.

MercyCare’s Housing Support Service is funded under the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness. Referrals to our Service can only be made through the following agencies:
