What we do

Ozanam House Redevelopment Project

Due for completion in March 2019, the new facility will provide integrated housing and support to people experiencing homelessness in Melbourne. 

VincentCare’s new Ozanam House in North Melbourne will be a world-class, modern and safe location where people experiencing homelessness are given every opportunity to access housing, health and social support services relevant to their individual needs.

The facility will also include a Homeless Resource Centre to meet the immediate physical and psychological needs of men and women experiencing homelessness, including: 

  • A homeless drop-in program
  • Health services
  • Case management and counselling
  • Client participation programs

Flexible accommodation options will provide different floor plans suitable for short, medium and long-term placements. All will include separate bathroom facilities and storage facilities, and some will include separate kitchenettes allowing for privacy and self-sufficiency.

How can I get involved?

We have secured the funding needed to complete the accommodation components but financial support is still needed from the community to enable the full fitout of our co-located Homeless Resource Centre in North Melbourne.

We are proactively seeking individuals, schools and organisations to donate or to help us raise the additional funds we need to bring our complete vision of integrated housing and support services to life. 

With an estimated 1300 people currently experiencing homelessness in Melbourne’s CBD, and more than 200 of these people sleeping rough on Melbourne streets each night, the need for additional accommodation options, and innovation in the provision of homelessness support services has never been more urgent.

You can raise funds in your workplace, at school or through a local community event, or you can make an online donation here.

All financial gifts of $1000 or more will be listed on a plaque in the main entrance of our new facility.

If you would like to get involved or require more information, please contact Fundraising Manager Shannon Anderson by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone 03 9611 9257.
