Centacare Kimberley

Centacare Kimberley provides a range of services to people who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless, or are experiencing financial hardship. We work with people from across the Kimberley region through the provision of an extensive Emergency Relief program and a suite of funded homelessness services. Through our homelessness services we work with a large number of rough sleepers, and have an outreach team that engages with people sleeping rough throughout the Broome area with a primary focus on supporting them to access social housing. To support this outreach work we run a homeless breakfast on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and in partnership with the Broome Parish put on a lunch every Sunday at Father McMahon Place. Centacare Kimberley works with a range of State Government partners to support people into long term stable acommodation. In our work with the Mental Health Commission and the Department of Housing in WA we have programs dedicated to supporting people leaving the Broome Mental Health Unit to secure long term accommodation. Complimentary to these targeted homelessness services is the Organisation's Public Tenancy Support Service that assists people in Public Housing tenancies to keep their home where there is evidence that the tenancy is at real risk. All Centacare Kimberley services work collaboratively with both mainstream and specialist services to support the social health and wellbeing of a large number of people who are highly vulnerable, marginalised, and at risk.
