Building Hope for the Homeless

  |  September 6, 2011

A new housing initiative, Common Ground Tasmania, could bring an end to chronic homelessness in the state.

The first two Common Ground sites on Campbell St and Liverpool/Goulburn streets are expected to open early next year.

Half the tenants will be Tasmanians who are homeless and the others low-wage tenants in need of affordable accommodation.

Yesterday, the New York-based founder of Common Ground supportive housing, Rosanne Haggerty, returned to Hobart to support the establishment of Common Ground Tasmania.
