housing SUPPORT


Cafs delivers a range of housing and tenancy support programs for people in our community, including specialised services for young people and members of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Homelessness can happen to anyone. Let us help you find a path that’s right for you.


When you’re renting, a notice to vacate the premises can seem like the worst-case scenario. But it doesn’t have to be. Our team has extensive training with Tenants Victoria and can help you understand your rights and responsibilities as a tenant.If your tenancy is at risk, we will work with you to develop a support plan. We will act as your advocate and make every effort to keep you in your home.

Tenancy Support: advocacy and advice for people in private residential tenancy agreements, including rooming house residents and caravan parks.

Tenancy Plus: support for people in public or community housing

Aboriginal Tenancies at Risk (ATAR): case managed advocacy and support for Aboriginal renters and residents in public housing, community housing or renting from Aboriginal Housing Victoria.
