Housing Older Women Support Service
Older women are the fastest growing group of people at risk of housing distress and homelessness in Australia.
Footprints Housing Older Women Support Service (HOWSS) offers a Brisbane-based Hub, a state-wide online navigation and support service, inclusive of all older women experiencing housing stress or homelessness. Read more about our HOWSS program.
In these changing times we continue to adapt how we support our clients and staff. There may be disruption to some services caused by COVID-19 restrictions and we make every effort to keep our clients informed of any changes. It is important to remember we all need to stay informed and follow the directions of Queensland Government.
During these times avoid unnecessary risks, maintain social distancing and infection control, and always ask for assistance if you need it.
