The funding will enable the two organisations to help meet demand for homelessness services in the region.

Member for South Coast Liza Butler said, “The South Coast has been hit hard by the current housing shortage and we want to ensure everyone in our community has a safe place to go when times are tough.

“This funding boost will enable these two organisations to expand their services and ensure more people in our community have a pathway to stable accommodation.”
