Abstract: Housing and homelessness is an increasing problem, as noted by welfare and community agencies. The annual demand for crisis and longer-term housing solutions are exceeding traditional housing programs. To address this issue, Wellways Australia implemented Doorway, a housing first program that is tailored to support individuals who experience mental ill-health and homelessness as they transition into the private rental market. This presentation will address the strategies implemented to support participants to access and sustain their private rentals.
