Hume Transitional Support Program

The Hume Transitional Support Program provides medium to long term transitional housing support. The core work of the program is team case management. The key role of the program is in assisting consumers to address the barriers to obtaining and, more significantly, maintaining, appropriate accommodation. The MOSS-Hume Transitional Support Program does this by assisting the consumer to develop a case plan that addresses these barriers through effective linkages, and by support with capacity building. The program is a large and comprises two teams, nominally team 1 and team2 with a team leader supporting each team. Clients are allocated to respective team depending upon which has a support vacancy.
