What is Pride in Place?
Pride in Place provides comprehensive, safe and inclusive recovery pathways for LGBTQIA+ people who are experiencing homelessness. Pride in Place also identifies and intervenes early to direct LGBTQIA+ people who are at risk of homelessness towards a place of safety and a pathway to sustainable housing. Our services include Initial Assessment and Planning, Case Management and Coordination, Peer Navigation and Service Navigation to connect LGBTQIA+ people with the services they need when they need them.
How will Pride in Place work with service users?
Agency and choice are at the centre of Pride in Place, with a focus on meeting people at their ‘place’ (wherever they feel safe and secure) and providing a flexible, whole-of-person and outcomes-based response.
