Who are we?
Lutheran Care's Outer Southern Generic Homelessness Service (OSGHS) provides support to families, couples and singles who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in the Onkaparinga Council area and surrounds.
The OSGHS is focused on supporting people to meet their housing needs and move quickly from homelessness to housing stability. We support people as they identify personal issues in their lives that have contributed to their current housing situation.
We encourage people to make their own decisions in setting goals for the future and enabling housing stability.

- information, advice and advocacy to support you with accessing other long-term housing
