Wollongong Homeless Hub and Housing Services (WHHHS) has been bridging the gap between homelessness to home since 1987, when we commenced operation as Wollongong Family Emergency Housing (WEFH).
Through our skilled teams of experienced workers, we assist individuals and families who are homeless to transition into crisis, transitional and long-term accommodation. This assistance can take many forms depending on the individual situation. Ranging from providing food assistance, facilitating access to community and government services, to a range of programs designed to assist clients overcome a variety of complex barriers to establish new tenancies – we are there.
To be a voice for a diverse homeless community that includes individuals, families, and young people experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of homelessness. To assist individuals and families to make the transition from homelessness to home.
To alleviate distress and empower vulnerable people from all backgrounds who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and support them to transition from homelessness to home.
To bridge the gap from homelessness to home.
Wollongong Homeless Hub and Housing Services (WHHHS) aims to provide a service to support families and individuals in crisis, assisting them to achieve a level of independence that enables them to reengage with their local community and live independently.
WHHHS achieves these aims by using an integrated, collaborative service delivery model that identifies and responds appropriately to the needs of families and individuals, beyond that of providing shelter.
