Launch Housing is a secular Melbourne-based community organisation that provides homelessness services and life-changing housing supports to disadvantaged Victorians. With over 400 staff working across 13 locations, we want to end homelessness and are committed to creating lasting societal change to help those most in need in our community. In a country as wealthy as ours no one should be homeless.
Launch Housing is delivering a high-impact strategy that aims to reduce homelessness in Melbourne with strong government support for new solutions to build more social housing and to reverse the rate of people sleeping rough.
Tenancy Plus provides case management support to public housing tenants and residents and some community housing tenants to achieve positive client outcomes and prevent homelessness. Tenancy Plus operates with a strong focus on sustaining tenancies in consideration of a vulnerable and disadvantaged client group and works to address needs and risk factors that make tenancies vulnerable.
The key focus of your role is to ensure that clients maintain safe, appropriate and sustainable accommodation by providing support to achieve goals and address issues that are impacting negatively on a tenancy. You will work within an outreach-based support model of service delivery and provide a case management model approach that includes assessment, case planning, case co-ordination and liaison.
Our ideal candidate will have:
Note: Full COVID-19 vaccination, Working with Children and police checks are mandatory at Launch Housing.
