HOME provides a supportive, loving home for 19 men and women with mental illness (medium-high needs) who cannot live independently or are at risk of homelessness.
100% self funded
HOME provides a supportive, loving home for 19 men and women with mental illness (medium-high needs) who cannot live independently or are at risk of homelessness – (Note: nine of our residents are from the A.C.T.).
HOME features 20 self-contained residential apartments—19 for permanent residents, and one for a live-in caretaker; there is also a five bedroom house on-site which is lived-in by a family who provide a back-up caretaking role.
We seek to humbly and lovingly walk alongside each other, recognising that our dignity and our freedom are caught-up in the dignity and freedom of those we serve and love.
First and foremost, HOME is a place of friendship—a place that counters the isolation and loneliness that too often goes hand in hand with mental illness.
Residents have access to 24 hour pastoral care delivered by qualified employees, volunteers, and live-in caretakers. Residents are seen daily and encouraged to live active, fulfilling lives within their community.
We recognise that people need more than just a house and meals, but regular loving care and support, too—a home.
We hope HOME is just the beginning of a national approach that encourages a cultural-shift in the care of people with chronic mental illness.
HOME is a living example of an entire community— residents, local businesses, schools, philanthropic foundations, community groups, churches, government—standing up and doing their bit to make a real difference in the lives of local people living with mental illness.
HOME is the story of a community willing to provide national leadership in the care of some of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens.
