Accommodation Options for Families (AO4F) supports families who are residing in private and unsafe rooming houses. The program has an intensive focus on working with the children in the household, with brokerage options available for accommodation support.
The program aims to reduce the number of families with children who are residing in private rooming house accommodation and to assist these families in securing longer term support and housing options including public housing, social housing and private rental accommodation.
Outreach support workers provide intensive support to families via outreach visits and office-based appointments. It is expected that families will work collaboratively with their support worker towards achieving their housing and support goals.
The program offers assistance to clients in the Northern and Inner South Metropolitan Melbourne regions. Support can vary from short term intensive periods of up to six weeks to longer term periods of six months, based on need.
