The 139 Club is a day centre for people at risk of or experiencing homelessness. We are a place to call home for many of Brisbane's most vulnerable people. We recognise that homelessness is a complex issue with many causes. Domestic violence, a shortage of affordable housing, unemployment, mental illness, family breakdown and drug and alcohol abuse all contribute to the level of homelessness in inner city Brisbane. Homelessness can and does happen to anyone, including people on high salaries with corporate jobs, self-funded retirees and young people fleeing difficult family situations. The exit from homelessness is not a fast one. The road home takes time, support and tenacity.
