In an effort to prevent COVID-19 infection, SA Housing Authority (SAHA) has provided emergency accommodation for rough sleepers. 

Motel rooms are now available to enable people sleeping rough to have the same physical distance and hygiene strategies as other South Australians.

Through our Street to Home service, Neami National is coordinating the rough sleeper response in conjunction with SAHA, Baptist Care and Hutt Street Centre.

We are seeking your support to identify and accommodate as many people who are sleeping rough as possible to advise them of the availability.

The Process for COVID-19 Emergency Accommodation information sheet will assist your referral and/or please contact our Street to Home team who can assist you.

Hannah Maccini is coordinating the response with Street to Home team.   Further enquiries can be directed to:


We will provide further information on the progress and any changes as they come to hand.

Please share this information with your teams to assist people sleeping rough by contacting Street to Home on 1800 811 180 to arrange accommodation.
