Our qualified team of Support Workers are on the front line of homelessness, engaging with Aboriginal people who are rough sleeping on the streets of Perth.
Moorditj Mia is led by Noongar Mia Mia, in partnership with Wungening Aboriginal Corporation, and is supported by the Department of Communities.
Our aim is to end rough-sleeping for Aboriginal people. Moorditj Mia offers a suite of culturally competent services, including:
- Connecting rough sleepers with local services suitable to their cultural and personal needs
- Assist in the search for suitable accommodation
- Help tenants seek culturally-secure support by actively collaborating with key service partners, including Wungening Aboriginal Corporation and the Department of Communities
- Ultimately, create long-term culturally secure pathways from homelessness to home ownership
In Noongar language, Moorditj Mia means Strong Home’.
Moorditj Mia uses the systems of community, family and kinship, lore and relational systems to facilitate more effective service delivery.
