You’ve heard it said, there’s no place like home. Ever wondered what that would sound like to a person or family who have no place to go? The reality is for many across the Sutherland Shire and St George region, home - a safe place - does not exist. The impacts of domestic violence, homelessness, addiction and family breakdown are driving many in our community to the margins of society. As our name suggests, we are a platform, a place of transition where people can come to stay, belong and prepare for a new future.
Platform Nine is a community of compassion which exists to provide crisis accommodation for individuals or families who simply have no place to go. Through providing crisis accommodation it is our mission to invite people into a place where they belong and where purpose can again be discovered. Our goal is to provide a platform where people are connected and empowered and where the discovery of a new life is made possible.
Platform Nine provides a place to stay for up to 3 months, a community of people to care and support and a pathway to assist in preparing for the future. Platform Nine is more than just a bed, it’s a place to belong.
