De Paul House Northcote

De Paul House provides housing and family support services. It responds to the needs of homeless families who are generally on a low income. Our service aims to keep families united in a safe and dignified environment, help them address the issues that have lead to them being homeless, and after around six months, have them leave us to successfully re-establish themselves in the community. De Paul House accepts families of all nationalities and religions.
