Justice Street Reach Helps To Prevent Homelessness

TASC Legal and Social Justice Services in Toowoomba has received funding to launch ‘Justice Street Reach’, a program that is aimed at preventing and addressing factors causing homelessness.

Our team of social workers, advocates and solicitors are working together with key community groups to help provide FREE legal and social support to people who may be at risk of living on the streets (subject to eligibility).

TASC Principal Solicitor David Manwaring said that homelessness can affect anyone and continues to have a significant impact on people’s lives.

“TASC knows that homelessness or the potential of living on the streets, is affecting many Australians nation-wide, including having a significant impact on their mental and physical health,” Mr Manwaring said.

“Subject to eligibility, TASC can help people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in a number of different ways – it may be helping with a tenancy issue, addressing unpaid fines or bills, separation, family or domestic violence, employment terminations or minor crimes – just to name a few.”

The Justice Street Reach program can help people who are experiencing financial hardship, affected by mental health or have a disability within the Toowoomba area. Make sure to talk to one of our solicitors when you visit the below community services to see if you’re eligible.

TASC visits Tony’s Community Kitchen and Base Services in Toowoomba weekly and Protea Place, also in Toowoomba, monthly. Keep an eye out on Facebook for future dates and times.
