Abstract In many parts of Australia, Indigenous people who are dwelling in public places and suffering from alcohol and/or other substance abuse are often in crisis. Responding to this need, the Jimaylya Topsy Harry Centre (JTHC) has been providing appropriate, caring and non-judgemental case management services in the regional city of Mt Isa in north-western Queensland since 2003. With a distinctive cultural approach to case management, including a managed drinking program as well as the integration of services, this Centre is a safe place which stands out in the field of responses to homelessness.
