What does life look like inside the house?
At Horizon House Broome, we provide you with a safe and supportive environment to develop the skills and access the support you need to look after yourself and live independently.
The house is a judgement-free space. We share the cooking and cleaning and host regular group activities to help you get to know your housemates (e.g. movie nights, shared weekly cooking sessions and weekend BBQs). We also invite you to celebrate birthdays and Christmas as a group.
There are regular house meetings to ensure everyone feels comfortable in the house and is across what’s coming up.
