ARTD to look at the HomeStay Support Initiative

October 2013

ARTD is now evaluating the HomeStay Support Initiative on behalf of the Queensland Department of Housing and Public Works. This initiative is an early and post-crisis intervention service that aims to support vulnerable people—particularly singe adults, families and older people—to address issues threatening their ability to maintain a tenancy. It provides a case management approach and links clients to relevant mainstream and specialist information and support services within their local community. The evaluation will explore how the HomeStay service has been established and is delivering support across sixteen sites, with a focus on four sites for case studies. It is funded under the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness.
