Specialist Homelessness Service

There are many people in our communities at risk of, or currently experiencing homelessness. At Momentum, we understand it’s important to respond rapidly. We can assist people to access crisis accommodation and provide the support you need to transition to a safe and stable home environment.

Through our partner networks and collaboration with outside agencies and providers, we ensure people are supported on a pathway out of, or away from, homelessness.

  • We offer personalised case management for holistic support to address the reasons that might be contributing to your housing situation
  • We can provide assistance and advocacy to maintain and sustain your existing tenancy
  • If needed, we can support you to be able to find your new home
  • We can facilitate access to crisis housing
  • We can offer help with learning the skills you need to achieve your goals and a safe and stable home environment.
  • We offer culturally appropriate and safe services especially for Aboriginal people and their families, through our partnerships with our Aboriginal partner agencies.
    These partners include Northern Rivers Community Gateway, Jali Local Aboriginal Land Council, Boolangle Local Aboriginal Land Council and Gurehlgam Corporation.
