How The Program Works
What to expect, what not to expect, what might surprise you.
Based on Christian principles, Living Free focuses on developing Christian character through teaching and mentorship to help equip the individual implement new strategies in their lives.
Clients attend a number of compulsory activities within the community including:
– gardening and maintenance
– weekly housing meetings
– daily morning reflection and group devotional time
– church services
– weekly one-on-one counselling
– group and individual studies
We are also a complete abstinence program. This means we are a no-smoking program, but we offer Nicotine Replacement Therapy to our clients.
Our waiting times can vary so make sure to ask our Intake Coordinator about this when you make contact.

The duration of the program is paid through your Centrelink pension (minus $20 per fortnight for personal spending). This fee includes board and lodging which covers things like food, medicine, counsellors, accommodation, utilities (electricity, gas, water), transportation, insurance, staffing and administration.
