Together Home


The Together Home program was first established in 2020 to minimize the spread of COVID-19 , by supporting people into affordable, sustainable and supported accommodation.

The program is funded by the Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ). Community Housing Providers are engaged to head lease properties in the private rental market and house people who have been sleeping rough or have a history of it.

CHPs engage appropriate support providers, such as Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS) including the Haymarket Foundation, to deliver wrap-around support that is tailored to the person’s needs.

In addition to getting straight into a home, the client can also get practical and financial assistance for things like furniture.

Entry Criteria:

Together Home can help people who are:

  • over 18 years old
  • street sleeping (or living in tents, cars) or have a history of street sleeping
  • being supported in Temporary Accommodation
  • clients of Specialist Homelessness Service providers who are currently in crisis or transitional accommodation
  • known to Assertive Outreach services across NSW
  • interested in moving into long-term housing, but may require support to do so

Aboriginal people are a priority for Together Home.
