Homeless Charities and Services in Darwin

Darwin has the highest rate of homelessness of any city in Australia, with an estimated two to three thousand people living rough at any one time.

This is at least partly because of a very tight rental market, with limited accommodation available and high rental costs.

Many workers and homeless people themslves don't know the full extent of all the work being done on homeless issues, that is on the street feeding, health and hygeine programs, housing issues, drug and alcohol programs, accommodation and employment programs.

This website page is about personalities, people, ideas and values and could serve as stimulus and/or connnections for volunteers, homeless workers and other interested people.
