The Wesley Harrison Information Support and Housing program aims to reduce the number of people becoming homeless within the Eastern Metropolitan Region. It does this by helping people to establish and maintain successful public housing tenancies. This service is available to all current and past social housing and public housing tenants within the catchment area. Within this program, our staff work with clients to promote self-determination, self-reliance and independence of the welfare system. This program is also a joint service from Wesley Mission and UnitingCare Harrison, with Wesley being the lead agency.
