What is Mountain View?

As the housing crisis in Southern Tasmania continues, Hobart City Mission identified the need for various levels of supported accommodation. The Safe Space program was one solution to homelessness, providing emergency and immediate shelter and safety.
As a next step in the path to permanent housing, the Mountain View program was launched in October 2020. The program caters to people who are on the Housing Tasmania priority wait list, and offers long-term housing options for people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness. 
Many of the residents at Mountain View have been experiencing long-term homelessness and may need additional support to feel safe and comfortable in permanent housing. 

The benefits to residents, and the community include:

  • Providing a way out of long-term homelessness
  • A safe and supported environment for people to live and work on their goals.
  • A supportive community environment and connection with other residents, support workers and community organisations
  • Independence and confidence gained through attaining new skills
