New Hope SA

New Hope SA aims to create long-term, sustainable pathways out of homelessness. It does so primarily through the use of multiple residential transitional homes which can accommodate 8 - 12 previously homeless individuals for a period of 6 - 36 months. New Hope SA's purpose is not only to provide accommodation for the homeless but a holistic program which includes a sheltered work environment, social work & counselling services & connection to drug & alcohol rehabilitation centres.
New Hope SA positions itself intentionally in small cluster homes which can mirror the family unit - this allows for effective communication, quick conflict resolution & it creates more adapted work & leisure opportunities for the residents of the home. A successful objective for New Hope SA would be for an individual who was living on the streets to be able to find community, financial independence, emotional, psychological & physical healing & spiritual growth in a New Hope house.
