This month, help vulnerable people make their new accommodation feel like home.

Setting up someone for tenancy success is a vital part of any homeless support service but funding for household items is hard to come by. This is where StreetSmart’s ‘Making-a-Home’ initiative steps in.

Many people experiencing homelessness have very few personal belongings, some have absolutely nothing, especially if they have fled a family violence situation. Everyday household items are a luxury they don’t have.

The housing set up process can include the purchase of items such as:

– White Goods (fridge, washing machine)
– Furniture (beds & mattresses, couches, dining tables & chairs)
– Kitchenware (plates, glassware, pots & pans, cooking utensils)
– Kitchen Appliances (toasters, kettles and microwaves)
– Soft furnishings (bed linen, towels, curtains, pillows)
– Household Items (vacuum, mops, brooms, cleaning materials)
– Moving and delivery costs
