Anglicare SA

According to the latest census figures, homelessness in Australia is up 14 per cent. The majority of those affected are under the age of 35. There has also been an increase in the number of older Australians facing homelessness, particularly older women.

But as we know women and children aren’t the only people experiencing  homelessness, it can happen to anyone. That’s why we’ve consolidated a comprehensive directory of South Australian homeless supports to further help members of our community to access services.
