Homeless in Frankston
A shortage of affordable housing in Frankston has become a major problem for people on low incomes.
Volunteers at CSF take the time to listen with empathy to the many complex issues faced by homeless people and work with them to re-engage with housing networks, assist with material support and link them to other services.
In 2017-2018 CSF volunteers and staff have seen an increase in people who did not have a fixed address requesting assistance from the agency. We are also seeing more people living on couches and cars than in previous years.
There is a perception homeless people have mental illness, drug and/or alcohol abuse and anti-social behaviour. In reality a relationship breakdown, unsafe home environment or job loss can leave someone in sub-standard accommodation, in a car, on the street, couch surfing or in a rooming house.
Whatever the reason, when a person becomes homeless or is without secure accommodation, it becomes extremely difficult to maintain a job, attend school and manage the simple things in life we take for granted.
CSF accepts tax-deductible donations which we use to buy take away meals, food parcels, toiletries, securing accommodation or a swag and making life a little bit easier for homeless people in Frankston.
