Bethlehem House Hobart is a 24-hour service centre for homeless men in central Hobart.
Bethlehem House is a special work of the St Vincent de Paul Society, and has been operating continuously since 1972.
We are the largest provider in Tasmania of crisis and transitional accommodation for homeless men and the only 24 hr staffed service for men.
We can provide 12,500 bed nights each year and currently we cater 30,000 meals per year to residents and other homeless men.
We are partly funded from the Federal and State Governments through the National Affordable Housing Agreement and also through resident contributions. Grant funding in recent years from the State Government, the Tasmanian Community Fund and the Hobart City Council have helped finance upgrades to facilities. Bethlehem House is a beautiful listed building but difficult to heat and look after.
We are thankful for the generosity of individuals, businesses and the wider community to continue our work supporting homeless men.
