We provide domestic and family violence support and specialist homelessness services to the Singleton, Muswellbrook and Upper Hunter communities.
Upper Hunter Homeless is funded by the Department of Communities and Justice. The service is confidential and free.
We work with women, men, young people, families, Aboriginal people and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, the LGBTQIA+ community and older people.
Services are available for people at risk of homelessness, who are currently homeless and/or who have experienced family and domestic violence (FDV).

Specialist Homelessness Services
We are here to help support people who are facing or experiencing homelessness in NSW. We help women, men, young people, families, Aboriginal people and people from culturally linguistically diverse backgrounds. This service is linked to our domestic and family violence support and is also available to people who are sleeping rough, young people leaving care, those with mental health issues, living in unsafe conditions, older people and from the LGBTIQ+ community.
People who are worried they are in a situation which might result in homelessness are encouraged to contact us for advice and support. Caseworkers work with clients who are not yet homeless to create strategies which allow them to sustain a tenancy.
The team also works with people who are homeless – who are rough sleeping, couch surfing, living with family or friends or in other unsustainable residences. Our service also supports young people leaving care, those with mental health issues and other situations which have created homelessness.
Upper Hunter Homeless upholds client rights to make their own decisions, and we understand that not everyone has the same goals.
