Homeless to Home system

As part of their funding agreement, all specialist homelessness agencies are required to use the Homeless2Home (H2H) client and case management system.

The H2H system:

  • ensures a consistent response to clients across South Australia
  • allows agencies to record client circumstances, services provided and outcomes reached
  • allows for standardised reporting.

Agencies are able to:

  • search for a client's history with Specialist Homelessness Sector (SHS) agencies
  • register and update client information
  • undertake an intake
  • undertake an assessment
  • undertake a case plan
  • refer clients, with their permission, to other SHS agencies.

Questions about the H2H system, including recent system changes, can be directed to the Homelessness Systems Support (HSS) team.


Access, training and system support is provided to agencies by the HSS team.

When accessing the system for the first time:

Basic user training

One day courses are conducted regularly aimed at new users or existing users who need a refresher.

Training places are limited. SHS workers will be given priority over placement students and non-SHS workers.

If you have recently completed a one-day training course, please complete the H2H Basic User Training survey.

Super user training

One day courses to upskill experienced H2H users with skills to provide basic training and support to colleagues in the use of the system. Super users are also called on to assist with testing changes to the H2H system prior to release.

People who make regular use of the system in their day to day work can be super users, they are often called upon to test new functions in H2H prior to release.
