Homelessness

Shoalhaven City Council aims to make sure that our public space can be shared by all people including those who may be homeless. Homelessness affects most communities and people living on the streets need our support.

Shoalhaven City Council works in partnership with government agencies, non-government services, community organisations and members of the community to resolve homelessness issues.
