Toward Home

Support for people experiencing homelessness in the Adelaide CBD, southern metro and Adelaide Hills regions.

Are you experiencing or at risk of homelessness?

Do you have health and wellbeing issues that impact your ability to secure long-term housing?

Toward Home is a homelessness service delivered by a team of experienced providers including Sonder, Baptist Care SA, Lutheran Care, Mission Australia and The Salvation Army. The organisations work together to provide shelter and support for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

The services provided are designed to help prevent, divert and resolve homelessness, with the aim of shifting care from crisis management to early intervention.

Our Toward Home teams are here to listen, assist and ensure that every contact that we have is respectful, is culturally mindful and places the person at the centre of our services.

Health & wellbeing services

We know that it can be hard to access physical and mental health support if you are at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness.

Sonder's mobile team of care coordinators, nurses and mental health practitioners are able to provide care where you need it.

We'll work with you to address your health and wellbeing needs and link you in with services so you can secure and maintain safe, long-term housing.

We can support you by:

  • Listening to your story

    Our team will listen carefully to your story so we can understand your unique needs.

  • Identifying mental health concerns

    Together, we’ll explore any mental health concerns you may have by providing a non-judgemental, listening ear.

  • Connecting you with mental health support

    If needed, we’ll connect you with ongoing mental health support so you can improve your wellbeing.

  • Addressing any long-term health conditions

    We can support you to access other services you may need to improve any long-term health conditions.

  • Linking you with other services

    We’ll create pathways to other services you may need to access to get your health back on track, such as dentists and doctors.

Lived experience workers

Unique to how we do things is our team of peer support workers with personal, lived experience of mental illness and/or homelessness.

Our peer support workers understand housing and health challenges as they have experienced these issues first-hand themselves.

Your peer support worker will provide you with non-judgemental and empathetic support.

They may share their own personal experiences with you and provide some helpful insights and strategies. Together, you’ll work to find ways to best support your needs.
