St Bart’s is a Western Australian not-for-profit organisation founded in 1963 as a small homeless shelter for men. For nearly 60 years, we have been standing by the side of vulnerable Western Australians experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness, mental health challenges, trauma and hardship. Since our foundation, we have evolved into a larger organisation that provides progressive, person-centered and trauma-informed recovery support to people in need, regardless of background, age, gender or ethnicity.
We provide safe, supported accommodation and services to people who need it the most. Each day, we stand by the side of more than 500 of Western Australia’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged people, supporting them on their recovery journeys and empowering them to achieve their goals.
We value our people – employees, volunteers, partners and stakeholders – and appreciate the meaningful contributions they make in the lives of our consumers.
