 Homelessness NSW has welcomed a report from the Australasian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) that shows that NSW Specialist Homelessness Services successfully provide vital assistance for homeless people to assist them to obtain and maintain tenancies in public housing.  The report Exploring transitions between homelessness and public housing found that over 85% of the public housing tenants in the study who received assistance from a specialist homelessness service had an ongoing tenancy at the end of the study.
