At Carrie's Place, we have 3 types of support and homelessness relief. These services are for women, men and children who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. These services include:
Women and Children’s Refuge
Our refuge can accommodate up to 6 small to large families at a time. Clients are provided with on-site intensive support including parenting, mental health, financial and material aid with the ultimate goal to transition into medium to long-term accommodation.
We have accommodation for single women and families. Women and families can stay in these properties for up to 12 months and receive case management support whilst building a rental history to increase their chances of success in the private rental market.
DVRE (Domestic Violence Response Enhancement)
We have 3 properties used for short-term accommodation for clients who are at high risk due to domestic violence. Clients receive intensive support to stay safe and are then supported into medium to long-term accommodation.
Access to accommodation is limited and based on availability at time of request.
Supported Temporary Accommodation Programs
Delivered in partnership with Hume Housing, we provide short-term accommodation to people who are homeless, have nowhere to stay short-term and are needing intensive support to find medium to long-term accommodation.
