Schools can support SJOS through “Fund-raising”. Whether a “gold coin” day or through a specific event, the opportunity to raise funds for SJOS is extremely important as it helps to cover the costs of maintaining the services offered to the community.
The transitional housing units provided by SJOS are managed by HomeGround Services, the letting agent. HomeGround Services accepts nominations from housing agencies across Melbourne and HomeGround Services can be contacted on 03 9537 7999.
As the health and safety of our volunteers, our supporters, our clients and our visitors is paramount during the coronavirus pandemic, we are closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 developments and following advice of expert authorities to respond to the outbreak to keep our people and the wider community safe and well.
