About Us

Adelaide North West Homelessness Alliance artwork element two

Our Story

At the Adelaide North West Homelessness Alliance, we believe safe and appropriate housing is a human right, and essential to wellbeing and independence.

That’s why we’re committed to providing support and services to young people, Aboriginal people, adults and families experiencing or at risk of homelessness across Adelaide’s north and west, extending as far as the Barossa.

We provide services through a collaborative partnership between seven for-purpose community organisations and the South Australian Housing Authority.

Together, we aim to provide access to safe and supported accommodation options that lead people towards independence and belonging.
