Service Overview 


While staying in an Atareira Transitional Housing home residents take care of their own basic living needs, including:

- personal hygiene

- cleaning and cooking

- transport etc


Staff will work alongside residents to develop a Housing Action Plan to work towards finding future accommodation.

We encourage the support that residents receive from other services during their time with Easy Access Housing.
