Men & Womens shelters

A little about our history...

Our first safe shelter opened 1st November 2020 and was operated on a nightly basis purely volunteer based in South St (a house kindly rented to us by MUM real estate with financial assistance provided by a local church (MUBC). Due to a lack of resources we had to close during the days. 

Groundswell Christian Church then offered their little white house on their property (rent-free) which was in need of much love. Our local community came together to renovate this house through in-kind and material donations and is now our Hwy Shelter. We received funding through different grants which meant we could employ staff and open our doors during the day. This has made a huge difference to our guests wellbeing.

We have kept the South St rental as one of our transitional houses (please see below about our transitional housing program).

We hope to be in our new shelter (operating 2 safe shelters) by Winter 2024.

Transitional Housing

We have partnered with local real estates in the Ulladulla area by renting houses and offering them to our guests at an affordable price. This 3-way partnership gives landlords peace of mind as SWCC guarantees payment of rent, regular contact and support for our guests/their tenants whilst providing affordable accommodation and connection. If you are interested in renting a property to SWCC please get in contact to discuss today.

Outreach

Our staff, volunteers and members provide outreach to anyone who is experiencing homelessness in our local area. This may include; providing meals, shower and laundry facilities, referrals to other services and connection with a sense of belonging.
