Street to Home – Ruah

Ruah’s Street To Home Program is an integrated response to the accommodation, general health, mental health, and other support needs of people sleeping rough by eight specialist homelessness services and a mental health mobile clinical outreach team (MCOT).

All agencies work in partnership to assist people sleeping rough to access stable housing, and address issues surrounding their homelessness to achieve positive, long term outcomes, and an improved quality of life.

Assertive Outreach Workers are the primary point-of-contact for the Street To Home Program. Ruah Assertive Outreach Workers make initial contact with people sleeping rough, wherever they are in inner-city Perth, accept referrals from mainstream and specialist service providers, and are directly linked with the mental health Mobile Clinical Outreach Team (MCOT), and Street to Home Housing Support Workers
