How we’re supporting our community
Homelessness, emergency and community support
People who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless often need to access services. This may be to find emergency accommodation or to receive specialised support. We work with people who are homeless, as well as with families to reduce the risk of young people leaving home and becoming homeless.
We can also provide emergency support for essential items for people who are struggling to make ends meet.
In partnership with the Clayton Wesley Uniting Church, Hope’s Café offers people from the eastern suburbs and surrounding communities – including those who feel disengaged and vulnerable – a place to get to know others and develop a sense of belonging.
Families newly arrived to Australia can also access specialised support to help them settle in to the community.
10 Financial and legal services
Where individuals or families need financial support or counselling, or legal advice, we can offer expert guidance.
Our financial counselling is free, independent and confidential. For low-income earners, we can provide assistance with moving house, and access to no- and low-interest loans.
We can provide general and specialised legal services for people needing legal information, advice, representation and referral. This includes legal advice, representation and financial counselling to people in South Australia in the areas of credit, banking and finance law and family violence as well as support for matters related to social security services.
Our mediation services can help to identify and resolve conflict and disputes at an early stage.
