The Ruah Centre

The Ruah Centre has been the heart of homelessness for over 60 years, providing people experiencing homelessness with a safe space to rest and refresh, as well as access to specialist support services.

The Ruah Centre has relocated and is now open at 247 James Street, Northbridge. 

Drop-in between 8.30am and 2.00pm Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) for:

  • Assertive advocacy
  • Crisis accommodation referrals
  • Document support, assistance with accessing ID and housing applications
  • Support with referral to case management programs, health services, legal services and other supports
  • Rest and recuperation facilities including showers.

For safety, children and people under the age of 20 are not permitted at the Ruah Centre. No referrals are necessary. Everyone is welcome. Everyone belongs.
