Supported housing for Tasmanians in need
The former Waratah Hotel in Hobart is now operational as a long-term supported accommodation facility. The refurbishment has delivered a 24-unit facility for single men who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness and require supported accommodation. The site will be managed by Bethlehem House, with the Tasmanian Government committing $1.7 million to support its operation over the next three years.
This builds on other measures to support Tasmanians in need including 18 temporary accommodation units for homeless men at Bethlehem House; 10 two-bedroom accommodation pods at the Hobart Women’s Shelter; 7 additional family-sized units to be managed by the Hobart Women’s Shelter; and partnering with Hobart City Mission to provide 31 supported accommodation units at the former Balmoral Motor Inn.
