Homeless services

Wesley Mission provides a wide range of services for the homeless and for those at risk of becoming homeless.  More than 600 people are cared for and accommodated each day through safe and secure, short to medium-term accommodation and support services to individuals, families, the elderly and young people.

Accommodation for individuals

Edward Eagar Lodge
Edward Eagar Lodge provides crisis accommodation for homeless men and women over the age of 18 for up to three months. Additional services include case management, a community church for the homeless and transitional accommodation and programmed support for homeless families.
Community Housing
The Community Housing program aims to provide a range of medium-term accommodation options as the next step on from hostel accommodation. This allows clients - both men and women - to progress towards independent living with dignity, privacy and security and self-worth.
Newcastle Accommodation and Welfare Services
The Newcastle Accommodation program is aimed at providing affordable low cost medium-term housing to clients identified as homeless or at risk of homelessness. The program provides a supportive environment working with clients to identify and eliminate any barriers they may have to finding and maintaining long term accommodation.

Accommodation for families

Short-term units
The Short Term Unit program at Carlingford is one of very few which can accommodate families consisting of couples with children, sole fathers and large families.
Noreen Towers Community
The Noreen Towers Community is a response to the high rate of homeless families with children in the Liverpool area. Working with Community Services and the Department of Housing, Wesley Mission has created an innovative community that combines access to family accommodation with family support and group work services.

Homeless support for young people

Independent Living Programs
Wesley Mission’s Independent Living Programs provide medium-term accommodation for young people, 16 to 22 years, who are unable to reside at home and are motivated to living independently. Young people entering these programs have generally been living in various types of accommodation for a period of time, or are first time out of home.  The programs are also an excellent starting place for young families who need assistance to move into independent living.

Homeless support for the elderly

Greenacre Supported Housing
The Greenacre service provides permanent accommodation to the elderly, who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless.
Assistance with Care and Housing for the Aged
The Assistance with Care and Housing for the Aged (ACHA) Program is designed to assist the homeless or people in insecure housing to access more appropriate housing with care options. 

Case management

Through case management, Wesley Mission offers an additional level of support to clients of Edward Eagar Lodge who want to exit the cycle of homelessness. We provide support services while staying at the lodge, supported pathways out of homelessness, and then support to sustain housing and improve wellbeing.
