Housing and Homelessness

Through a number of different programs, we are able to provide support to the homeless, and those who are at risk of losing their tenancy. Often this requires a multi tiered approach and we have proven experience in helping our clients to maintain their tenancy and make lasting improvements in their living arrangements.

If you are a person 50 years or older who is homeless or at risk of homelessness, please refer to Ageing

If you are a person 65 years or younger, you have a condition that affects your ability to complete activities of daily living and who is homeless or at risk of homelessness, please refer to Community Care

Every day across Brisbane there are about 5813 people (ABS 2016 Census) that do not have a safe place to sleep.

Footprints SUSO outreach bus and its dedicated team is here to support individuals that are sleeping rough and/or at risk of homelessness. We can provide those individuals with a comfortable and safe environment to shower, access laundry facilities, and our dedicated team is available to help individuals get access to the right supports and services.

SUSO works with organisations and neighbourhood centres to complement the existing services that are already present in the area.

Our service currently operates weekly in Wynnum, Capalaba, Lawnton, Zillmere and Clontarf, over a 5 day working week.

We need your help
Footprints understands how important volunteers are, and so do our SUSO patrons. Something as simple as having a conversation whilst waiting for your laundry, or sitting down over a warm cup of tea, can make a real difference in people’s lives. If you would like to make a difference and can volunteer some of your spare time, please contact us today.
