Targeted housing and support service (THaSS)

 

Overview

The Targeted housing and support service (THaSS) is run by the Community Restorative Centre in New South Wales. This program provides a broad range of casework services to females exiting Dillwynia, Emu Plains and Berrima Correctional Centres who are at risk of homelessness, and who have children and/or complex needs such as intellectual disabilities, low cognitive functioning, substance use and/or mental health issues. The target group will be restricted to sentenced prisoners. A major goal is to prevent exits into rough sleeping or transient, unsuitable accommodation.

The service engages participants who are referred by the correctional centres up to three months prior to release, to identify post-release needs, and to facilitate appropriate accommodation in the Greater Western Sydney area.

The support that THaSS provides for women exiting the prison system includes (but is not limited to):
