Wongee Mia

This innovative pilot program is transforming the way we support Aboriginal people who need help with housing, working closely with an extended Indigenous family in central Perth.

Meaning Strong Home, the Wongee Mia action-learning project supports individuals who are experiencing intergenerational homelessness and poverty, as well as their extended family who are also homeless or at risk of losing their tenancy. The project shows how outcomes for one person can positively affect the rest of their family.

The program involves family Elders, and follows the family’s lead on how to engage, using yarning sessions and collaboration with other services.

The Wongee Mia project has been generously supported by grants from the PwC Foundation and Mercy Foundation.
