20 Lives 20 Homes
The 20 Lives 20 Homes project will be the first place-based trial of the 50 Homes 50 Lives housing first model in the metropolitan area. The St Patrick’s 20 Lives 20 Homes team will work along with Ruah and a range of collaborating agencies, to provide intensive wrap around support to individuals facing complex barriers to exiting homelessness. 20 Lives 20 Homes aims to remove these barriers, through a person-centered and trauma informed approach.
The team will work with the individuals by providing the brokering of housing, and provision of support to sustain that housing in the long term. The service activity will take place exclusively in Fremantle region. Ruah will provide after-hours support for individuals engaged with the program.
