  • Bethlehem House has thirty beds at Warwick Street, thirteen of which are for emergency accommodation. This accommodation includes one television room, a reading room with three computers, an 8-ball table, a servery/kitchenette for residents, and an enclosed covered courtyard. Board is payable fortnightly in advance.

    Bethlehem House also manages a 2 bedroom unit for men with children. This accommodation is regarded as transitional and as a stepping stone for men moving back into the community. Weekly outreach is provided to men living in these properties. In addition, outreach support is available through Housing Connect services to residents who move from Bethlehem House into alternative accommodation.

    There are also four additional places for medium to long-term accommodation, in a share house setting at Hallam House.

    We also provide support services to non-residents, subject to assessment.  Non-residents can access the House to have showers, do laundry and purchase low-cost meals at 56 Warwick Street, from Monday to Friday (7.30am- 9.30am and 3.00pm – 5.30pm).

    An initial assessment determines eligibility to access services. This is followed by a more intensive follow-up assessment within 48 hours.

    An integrated individualised case management programme provides referrals to other appropriate services. These include a local general practitioner (who bulk bills) free dental treatment (provided through grant assistance) and pharmacist.  A men’s counsellor and a Centrelink officer visit Bethlehem House each week.

    Men using the services of Bethlehem House must agree to support its house rules, which ensure the safety of residents, staff and visitors.

    Our services to non- residents have expanded in 2015/6 with an increased number of non-residents accessing Bethlehem House for breakfast, dinner or to shower of use the laundry facilities.  Close to 3,500 ration pack containing non-perishable food items have been distributed.
