Today marks the beginning of Homelessness Week 2018. We will be taking this opportunity to raise awareness of the issues currently affecting our community. The leading causes of homelessness are: * Domestic and family violence, & relationship breakdown; * Housing crisis including a lack of accomodation options, and inadequate or inappropriate dwellings; and * Financial difficulties and housing affordability stress. If you are experiencing (or at risk of) homelessness in the Yarra Ranges Shire, please call us on 9760 6400 to make an appointment to see us at Lilydale, or our outreach sessions at Yarra Junction and Healesville. Anchor’s ‘Opening Doors’ service offers housing information and can refer to local services.
