The Housing & Support Program (HASP) is a joint Commonwealth and State initiative administered through the QLD Department of Housing & Public Works.
HASP assists young people aged 16 to 25 years who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless. The HASP team provide both centre based and mobile case management support, with the aim of reducing the number of young people who are homeless, or who may experience homelessness, by assisting them to:
1. Obtain Housing
2. Maintain their housing
3. Maximise their capacity to be independent, self-reliant and connected to appropriate social and community supports
Participation in the HASP program is voluntary, please ensure you have obtained the young person's consent before making a referral to our program.
