Aboriginal - Eastern Adelaide Aboriginal Specific Homelessness Service (EAASHS)

This solution provides short-term houses where homeless people can stay while we work to find a more permanent residence. Case managers work with homeless people to plan a way forward out of the issues that cause homelessness. Intensive Tenancy Support works with Aboriginal clients who are about to lose their accommodation due to ongoing problems.

Community Transition Worker Program

This program provides Baptist Care case management services to clients who do not fall into the Aboriginal or Youth catgeories. Only clients receiving case management from Baptist Care potentially have access to transitional housing. While clients are in transitional housing Baptist Care works with them in order to obtain and maintain stable and permanent housing solutions.

Youth Homelessness

Like the name suggests, this program is dedicated to helping young people (14 - early 20 year olds) who are in a crisis situation where they have already become homeless or for whom the prospect of homelessness is imminent. The overall objective is not just to provide a place of residence but to work through the client’s issues and challenges so that they have the skills for independent living.
