Everyone deserves a 2nd Shot!

  • About Us

    Our History

    In 2016 BASE Services established 2nd Shot an innovative pathway, which provides hospitality training and employment opportunities to people experiencing homelessness in Toowoomba,


    Our Vision

    To see people exit homelessness and live with a sense of dignity.


    Our Mission

    To break the cycle of homelessness through providing training and employment opportunities to people experiencing homelessness.


    Our Method

    People experiencing homelessness are often desperate to get a job, which is hard as not only do they lack accommodation but the majority of people experiencing homelessness left school before Year 10 with no formal education and are experiencing long term unemployment.

    Since 2016 2nd Shot has been providing training and employment opportunities to people experiencing homelessness, while providing the  wrap around support needed to exit homelessness and unemployment.


    What is homelessness?

    There were 116, 000 people experiencing homelessness in Australia on census night in 2016. This equated to 1 in 200 Australia.

    People who are homeless in Australia are classified into one of six categories. These are:

    • improvised dwellings, tents, sleepers out
    • supported accommodation
    • people staying with other households
    • boarding houses
    • other temporary lodgings
    • severely overcrowded dwellings.
