Barwon Homelessness Services provide services in Geelong, Colac, Bellerine and surrounding areas.  

As the Adult Entry Point to the homelessness service system in the Barwon South West, The Salvation Army is working to end homelessness. We understand that without further investment in housing this is difficult to achieve. Men, women and families are becoming entrenched in the homelessness due to a chronic lack of housing supply. We will continue to advocate for an increase in high quality housing and support for people vulnerable to or currently experiencing homelessness. 

Barwon Homelessness Services assists those in housing crisis and the homeless to establish a secure home environment through the provision of transitional accommodation, financial assistance, intervention and advocacy. 

All referrals to our accommodation services are made through the Adult Entry Point located in Myers Street Geelong.  

In the first seven months of 2013 the Adult Entry Point provided assistance to 979 people but could not house 864 people presenting as homeless.
