Welcome to
Southside Community Care
About Us

As a Specialist Homelessness Service SCC offers Crisis Accommodation and support to Homeless families with the support of the Dept of Communities and Digital Economy and the Queensland Department of Housing.

Family homelessness is less visible because its often ‘secondary homelessness’ which means that families are in temporary accommodation where they have to keep moving around. This effects the capacity to keep children at school, maintain employment, and a stable lifestyle. The staff are very committed to help these families.
