Homeless Outreach Mental Health Support (HOMHS) is a program for young people between the ages of 15–25 years who may be facing homelessness because they are experiencing mental health issues.
We work closely with clinical services to provide you with support to remain in your own home or to seek alternative accommodation.
We assist you in building on your personal recovery and developing skills for sustaining your home in the community of your choice.
You will be supported in building skills to maintain your tenancy, working through your recovery-related goals, finding employment, and becoming involved in your local community.
Wellways manages two transitional houses, and we also have links with real estate agents to support you entering the private rental market.
Referral to the program is usually by your case manager, the Barwon Prevention and Recovery Centre or other clinical services. You can also self-refer.
