About the Homelessness Task Force:

The Hornsby Homelessness Task Force was established in 2008 in response to a series of crises in Hornsby Park involving homeless people.  At that time there were 382 homeless households in the Hornsby Local Government Area.

Unfortunately, until very recently there was very little focus on provision of appropriate accommodation for them. Services were scarce and our homeless population was a largely hidden group of disadvantaged people.

The St Vincent de Paul Society and the Salvation Army are the predominant providers of assistance to homeless people; they struggle to meet the needs of hundreds of really needy individuals and families, young and older citizens.

The Task Force comprises many groups, organisations and individuals including: Churches, local volunteers, Police, representatives from Hornsby Shire Council, charities, Mercy Foundation, Clifton Adolescent Family Services, Mission Australia, and schools.
