This document represents the final report of an evaluation of homelessness services provided in Southern Tasmania by Hobart City Mission (HCM) between mid-December 2019 and late November 2021. The purpose of this report is to better understand the pattern of service usage; and the evolving model of practice in providing hub services for rough sleepers and those at risk of homelessness. The evaluation was undertaken by researchers from The Tasmanian Institute of Law Enforcement Studies (TILES) at the University of Tasmania. A multi-method approach was adopted which included a quantitative analysis of data provided by HCM; a rapid review of best practice service provision for the homeless; and collation of feedback from program staff and management, service clients and representatives of organisations using the Hub to deliver services to the homeless
