About Us

Our Vision & Mission

image1 Home

The House of Welcome’s vision is for a society in which there is full recognition of the dignity, equality, human rights and humanity of all people living in the community no matter their age, gender, sexuality, nationality or religious affiliation, and no matter how they came to be in Australia.

We seek to welcome, shelter, and empower asylum seekers and refugees. We aspire to provide client-centred holistic supports that nurture hope, advocate for justice and promote self-reliance, while acknowledging the dignity and championing rights of each individual.

HoW provides transitional housing, financial and emergency assistance, no-interest loans, advocacy and casework support, community activities, material aid and skills development courses to community-based asylum seekers at risk of homelessness and destitution.

We campaign with our asylum seeker organisations across Australia for the right to work for all asylum seekers, for an end to mandatory detention and for a nation of welcome and justice for all.

    The HoW supports those most in need who are not eligible for support, and empowers clients to join the community with pride.
