No one deserves to be homeless



Hills Homeless Prevention Initiative (HHPI) is a rental/bond assistance program aimed at assisting residents of the Hills Shire who are experiencing financial hardship.  Funded by the Hills Winter Sleepout, a unique community fundraising event that raises awareness of homelessness. Hills Winter Sleep Out provides rental or bond help up to $1000. The program is only accessible once per household.



Our assistance is based on individual assessment. A budget will be completed to ensure rent is sustainable.
