Sydney unit shows success

 
December 6th 2016
 

Sydney's successful 110-bed 'Common Ground' facility celebrates its fifth birthday this year, with Mission Australia CEO Catherine Yeomans praising its impact.

Residents at the facility have experienced an average of 13 years of homelessness in their lives, but 93 per cent of them have now been able to sustain a tenancy for over a year.

'Common Ground' is more like a self-service unit than a regular temporary accommodation hostel, offering a 24-hour reception service, a gym, kitchen, art room and library among its many free services.

Yeomans used the facility's birthday celebrations as an opportunity to urge the Australian government to replicate its model across Sydney to help the remainder of the city’s homeless population.
