Housing Support

Since 2005, the Rooming House Plus Program (RHPP) has enabled people with histories of chronic homelessness to break their cycle of disadvantage through the provision of long-term accommodation and the support needed to maintain housing.  

Sacred Heart Mission will be prioritising all support and housing vacancies to people in emergency accommodation (hotels/motels) due to COVID-19 until further notice, as per DHHS COVID-19 Homelessness Guidelines.

RHPP is a partnership with Community Housing Limited (CHL) which is a not-for-profit housing provider that is owner and tenancy manager of the property at 69 Queens Rd, Melbourne

The property provides self-contained accommodation for 67 single adults over 18 years of age. A communal dining room, arts studio, laundry facilities, gym and vegetable garden are also available on site. Nine of the units cater for people with a physical disability.

The people who live at RHPP have a range of complex needs including mental illness, substance use, and histories of long-term homelessness and trauma.

Building a sense of community is central to RHPP and residents are strongly supported through the social inclusion program to be involved in activities in the broader community.

Family members and carers are actively involved with the RHPP community. Residents are assisted to re-engage or develop existing relationships with family members.

Residents can lead very active lives with regular art therapy sessions, weekly shopping trips, and music and movement session.
