SHSN 
SOUTHERN HOMELESSNESS SERVICES NETWORK

 

The SHSN is a resource for the homelessness sector in the South.   

The Vision of the Southern Homelessness Services Network (SHSN) is an end to homelessness in the Southern Region of Melbourne (comprising Bayside-Peninsula and Southern Melbourne Department of  Fairness, Families and Housing areas).  

The Mission of the “Victorian Homelessness Networks is to facilitate, inform and support regional homelessness services and stakeholders to work together to co-ordinate services to people who are experiencing or who are at risk of homelessness.”

 

The Network comprises all funded Specialist Homelessness Services in the Southern Region including services providing crisis, transitional, long term, family violence and youth support and accommodation.  The Network also supports related services working in homelessness.
