About Sanctuary Place

Sanctuary Place Mission


Sanctuary Place’s mission is to provide a long-term, sustainable, self-perpetuating response to the homelessness crisis in Australia by providing viable housing solutions for those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We believe every individual, regardless of their hardship or history has the right to needs such as housing, care, and safety in a dignified and empowering manner. Sanctuary Place proven housing model is built on the right for everyone having a home regardless of circumstances.

The Sanctuary Place Difference

Sanctuary Place recognises meeting the immediate needs of the disadvantaged community, with a place to call home is vital. However, more is required to inspire and enable those individuals to find purpose and value in their everyday lives. The Restorative Life Support (RLS) program enables individuals to transition into our community through a structured program which not only re-instates a persons’ dignity and purpose but allows them to connect with our industry partners to encourage and inspire direction for their recovery and rehabilitation. The Restorative Life Support program is the key to create constructive long-term change in a dignified, non-judgmental space.

Sanctuary Place has been a self-sustaining social enterprise for the last six years in which most of the care supports for those that qualify funding has come through the building partnership, via our in-house construction and building company.

Another significant business focus is the submission of grant and funding applications. Our expectation is to receive support from government and private sector in the form of financial support, which will enable us to grow and continue to deliver care and assistance to the marginalized in the community.
