HOMELESSNESS AND EMERGENCY ACCOMMODATION

Safe, permanent housing is one of our most basic needs but sadly, some ex-Defence members are lacking just that. 

Whether you're couch surfing, living in your car or sleeping rough, we can help you and your family find a place to call home.

RSL Queensland's Veteran Homelessness Program provides a comprehensive case management approach to support you in finding safe and sustainable rental accommodation.
