The aim of the transitional housing program is to provide safe and affordable short to medium term accommodation combined with support to assist people to begin to address any issues that may have contributed to their situation; and work towards re-establishing secure housing as soon as possible.
The housing is provided by DHHS and managed by YCH, in partnership with a wide range of support agencies.
