2017: Ending Homelessness Report Launch at NSW Parliament

Jewish House are leading innovators of the New York City HomeBase model of homelessness intervention and prevention methodology and have dedicated over 2 years of resources and expertise to measure and evaluate the outcomes of our programs of intervention and case management for homeless clients.

The “Ending Homelessness” report was launched by John Brogden AM, Chair of Lifeline on the 15th of November at NSW Parliament House to a room full of Ministers, MP’s and a host of dignitaries.

The Report is an independent analysis of outcomes data of Jewish House’s HomeBase Program undertaken by the University of Technology Sydney: Institute of Public Policy and Governance.

HomeBase supports clients after leaving crisis accommodation so that they can establish independent living with appropriate ongoing psychosocial and health support. Results show that expanding this program could save the NSW Government more than $150 million per year.

Jewish House CEO, Rabbi Mendel Kastel OAM hopes that the Ending Homelessness report presented today in Parliament will create the dire change needed to tackle the rapid growing issue of homelessness in Australia.
