Once in a generation project! Working together, giving hope to prevent and end homelessness.
In 2020, The South Australian Government announced a significant reform agenda for the homelessness sector. In response the Toward Home Alliance was formed by some of the most experienced agencies working within the sector. The Toward Home Alliance brings together Aboriginal Community Services, Baptist Care SA, Lutheran Care, Mission Australia, Sonder, and The Salvation Army.
Toward Home Alliance in collaboration with the South Australian Housing Authority (SAHA) has identified a need for transformational change in the way services support people affected by homelessness. The Toward Home Alliance strategy focuses on shifting homelessness services from crisis management to early intervention and prevention. We recognise that every position within the Toward Home Alliance has a vital role to play in reducing homelessness
