Welcome to Shelter

Our vision is for affordable, appropriate, safe and secure housing for all and an end to homelessness. Our mission is to provide a united voice for services and service users that creates a framework to effect positive change in the housing and homelessness sector. We work to ensure that low-income and disadvantaged people in Tasmania have access to housing that is affordable, safe, secure and appropriate to their needs.


Safe Night Space Pilot Program

In order to address rough sleeping and the housing crisis in Hobart, the Salvation Army and Hobart City Mission have started a pilot program called Safe Night Space. The aim of the Safe Night Space is to provide a welcoming, safe and inclusive over-night place for men and women to go who are vulnerable, isolated and homeless in the City of Hobart. $450,000 is needed to bring this pilot program to life, and these two organisations are calling on community donations to help make it a reality.
