Housing Connect connects Tasmanians on low incomes and in crisis, with long-term stable housing and support where it is needed. Housing Connect provides:
1. A one-stop shop for clients to access their housing and support needs. It provides immediate assistance, assessment and intake service for people who need help with housing or who are homeless.Clients have one housing and support assessment instead of going to numerous different services to get help.
2. Ongoing support to people with high needs to prevent them experiencing a further housing crisis.
3. Emergency accommodation with more capacity for those that need more help, such as families, men with children, pregnant women and people with high and complex needs.
