Home and Healthy

Home and Healthy

The Home and Healthy social impact investment supports homeless people and those at risk of homelessness who are leaving hospital or health facilities by offering holistic support. The program aims to achieve sustained housing, and improved employment and training outcomes.

The program is delivered by Mission Australia and will support up to 1,200 people in the Sydney, South Eastern Sydney, Western Sydney and South Western Sydney Local Area Health Districts, over six years. The program began in July 2019.

Each participant is supported during their transition from a health facility then ongoing for up to two years, with an allocated case manager, effective housing strategies and access to a holistic team including mental health clinician and lived expertise worker. 

The NSW Government committed $20 million to this crucial investment as part of the NSW Homelessness Strategy.
