Gippsland Lakes Community Health provides support to people who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness.

Homelessness-and-Housing-Support

Homelessness is more common than you may think, if you are currently homeless or know someone who is homeless. We can offer the following services:

  • Help to access and/or maintain housing – including Public, Aboriginal & Community Housing.
  • Assistance addressing issues that brought about homelessness
  • Advocating on your behalf
  • Providing crisis response to homelessness through the ‘Opening Doors’ program (Lakes Entrance only)

The group meets weekly and some sessions may include activities and a guest speaker.
