    Coping with housing stress

    Decent, affordable housing reduces stress. One of the main points of Sanctuary place is to provide housing to those who are homeless – but how do people become homeless? Many surveys have found that stress is a high contributor too many issues in people’s lives. Stress when exacerbated, can cause fear, worry, chronic health or mental health issues, and, in extreme circumstances, homelessness.  Coping with stress can be hard, but dealing with stress in a healthy way will make yourself, the people you care about, and your community stronger.  Especially in these uncertain times like during the COVID pandemic, and depending on your background, your support, your financial situation, your…

    Do you really know what homelessness is?

    Homelessness isn’t just sleeping on the street, and it’s because of this that the majority of the population don’t realise how bad the Australian homeless situation is. It’s also classified as those who are couch surfing, living in an overcrowded or an inadequate dwelling, sleeping in your car, or relying on short-term accommodation fixes. There is no typical human who is susceptible to homelessness, it can affect any person, from a single male to families, of any race, age or gender; and the leading cause currently in Australia of homelessness is domestic violence. As of the Mission Australia’s findings, in 2018/2019, approximately 40% of people searching for accommodation at specialist…

    Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

    This is a bold statement, but once your physiological needs are taken care of, the rest of your life can fall into place. According to a theory in psychology by Abraham Maslow, the ‘Maslow Hierarchy of Needs’; there are different levels of human needs. The most basic need is physiological – which is at the bottom, and states that everyone at first needs food, water, warmth & rest. They then elevate one after the other continually, next with Safety, then Belonging/Love, Esteem   and finally Self-Actualisation. In today’s society it’s believed that once these needs are more or less met, we will have a fulfilled life and gain self actualisation.…

    Sanctuary Place: Housing for the Homeless

    Have you ever given much thought to the basic needs of humans? Maybe you haven’t – which is understandable, as many wouldn’t until they were stuck in that situation themselves. But housing is considered to be one of the most basic human needs. Abraham Maslow was a psychologist who studied the needs of everyone, fully researched people in every different situation of life, and found common characteristics throughout – and found that the happiest of humans constantly had five needs met, which he saw in a hierarchy, a list, from highest to lowest. The highest of these needs are the physical survival needs – food, drink, shelter, sleep and oxygen.…
