My Home and Family
We all need a place we can call our home – not just shelter, but a place where we can have our privacy, be with those we love, and belong.
We support individuals and families in securing and maintaining a home, as well as connections to their community.
We assist people living in supported accommodation such as women’s refuges and men’s hostels in the south-west metro area to make the move from crisis to longer term private or public rental housing.Learn more
It can be difficult for individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, especially if you are from a migrant or refugee background.Learn more
Children in families at risk of homelessness have their own independent needs. We work alongside children setting goals, enabling development, and building social connections.Learn more
Everyone should feel safe in their own home. While people from a migrant background are less likely to report domestic violence, they often face more barriers in accessing appropriate support.Learn more
UnitingCare West is a proud partner of Multicultural Futures. Knowing that we can depend on the team to readily collaborate and walk alongside us to support people who need our combined skills and abilities in order to have their goals met is, quite simply, fantastic.
Access Housing and Multicultural Futures have a well-established, collaborative working relationship going back many years. We look forward to continuing and building upon this relationship into the years ahead as we partner to assist some of the community’s most vulnerable people.
We rely heavily on the support of agencies and programs such as Multicultural Futures in order to ensure best outcomes and recovery for people. The contribution of this flexible and culturally sensitive agency is a partnership that we will continue to build and foster.
With help from Multicultural Futures, we now stand on our own feet and by paying tax hopefully, we can give the opportunity for another family to make change for a more peaceful and prosperous life.
We highly valued Multicultural Futures’ contribution to developing our first Cultural Diversity Strategy. They brought a wealth of cultural insight and strong community connections with newly settled Cockburn community members which ensured a rich diversity of views were captured.
I feel much more confident in my interactions with families from migrant or refugee background.

I loved learning about the different communications styles of different cultures and the importance of my own personal cultural glasses
