SOUTHERN HOMELESSNESS SERVICES NETWORK
Ending Homelessness Together
The Southern Homelessness Services Network (SHSN) comprises all funded Specialist Homelessness Services in the Southern Region including services providing crisis, transitional, family violence and youth support and accommodation. The SHSN is a resource for the homelessness sector in the South.
This website provides information and resources about homelessness, with a focus on the Southern Region of Melbourne to support improved service coordination among Specialist Homelessness Services as well as allied services working with people experiencing homelessness.
The SHSN asks that you join us in saying “Yes” to an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament in the referendum on 14 October 2023. Click here to read our statement of support.
