Homelessness

The causes of Homelessness are complex, with no single trigger. Individual, interpersonal and structural factors play a role and interact with each other.

This may include people living in improvised dwellings, tents and sleeping out; those living in supported accommodation for the homeless; those staying temporarily with other households; those living in boarding houses; those in other temporary lodgings; and those living in severely overcrowded buildings

The Homelessness Resource brochure has been developed to provided support to people who are experiencing homelessness in Knox.
