National Homelessness Services Achievement Awards
Thursday, 2nd May 2013 at 11:12 am

Seven community organisations from across Australia have been recognised for their outstanding work to prevent and tackle homelessness, as recipients of National Homelessness Services Achievement Awards.

2013 National Homelessness Services Achievement Award Recipients are:

Excellence or innovation in addressing homelessness by an organisation – Journey to Social Inclusion project through Sacred Heart Mission, VIC.

Excellence in the prevention of, or early intervention in, homelessness – Samaritans Brokerage Support Service through the Samaritans Foundation, NSW.

Outstanding business or philanthropic commitment to addressing homelessness – Making Ends Meet program through Anglicare WA.

Excellence or innovation in partnerships in delivering services – Homelessness to Home Healthcare program through Micah Projects, Mater Health Services, St Vincent’s Health Care, Greater Metro South Brisbane Medicare Local and Metro North Medicare Local, QLD.

Excellence in addressing Indigenous homelessness – Watch House—Pick Up and Case Management project through Larrakia Nation Aboriginal Corporation, NT.

Excellence in supporting pathways to employment or education – WorkNext Services Education and Employment Program through Catherine House Inc, SA.

Excellence in addressing homelessness in a regional, rural or remote location – Community Accommodation & Support Agency Inc (CASA), QLD.

The Minister for Housing and Homelessness, Mark Butler and Parliamentary Secretary for Homelessness and Social Housing, Melissa Parke congratulated the Award recipients.

“Selecting just seven winners from a field of 23 finalists was extremely difficult, highlighting just how hard Australians are working to prevent and tackle homelessness,” Butler said.

“These services help people find affordable and sustainable housing, get through financial crises, manage health issues, address substance misuse, develop skills, and find work.

“This Government has made tackling homelessness a national priority, and is committed to halving the overall rate of homelessness by 2020,” Melissa Parke said.

“Being homeless or facing homelessness can make it enormously difficult to do any of the ordinary things in life like hold down a job, get an education, or plan for the future.

“But thanks to the commitment of these organisations and the diverse support they provide, thousands of people in Australia have someone to turn to when they need it most.”
