Dale Parker Place

Supported Accommodation

Dale Parker Place occupancy has exceeded 95% at all times, with several clients successfully transitioning into private or community housing.

Dale Parker Place accommodates and supports single males, single females, and couples without children who are experiencing homelessness and are currently sleeping rough or chronically homeless to attain independent, sustainable housing and participate within the community.

The service provides a high level of individual case management to clients to support their transition to appropriate accommodation.

DPP staff the facility 24 hours per day, seven days a week.

In 2016, the building on 107 Bowen Road was demolished and replaced by a new 40 x 1 bedroom units complex, reopening in August 2017. The new facility increased capacity from 25 tenancies to 40 tenancies. This expansion of DPP gives a permanent long-term home to those who will never sustain public or community housing.

The facility has proven popular, with a waiting list now maintained for those who wish to live at Dale Parker Place.

Dale Parker Place has also positively impacted Townsville’s homeless population, as evidenced by reduced occupancy rates at the Reverend Charles Harris Diversionary Centre.
