SydWest Multicultural Services’ Homelessness Project is designed to help people from non-English speaking backgrounds who are experiencing difficulties accessing private, government or community housing in the Blacktown LGA. We aim to reduce homelessness by empowering people so that they are able to maintain their tenancies and we provide assistance and advice for people experiencing difficulties. The program also addresses issues of mortgage stress.
This project is delivered in a consortium with Mission Australia and is funded by the Department of Communities and Justice through the Going Home Staying Home Program. Please contact our Housing Project Worker on (02) 9621 6633 to find out more.
