Moongoong Sober Up Shelter

 

Overview

Moongoong Sober Up Shelter offers intoxicated people in Kununurra, Western Australia (WA), a safe place to sleep for the night. Clients at the shelter receive two light meals and have access to showers, laundry and a bed for the night. The Shelter also works in conjunction with Ord Valley Aboriginal Health Service to offer a monthly morning clinic as well as access to counselling services.

The program was set up in response to the Deaths in Custody reforms and is run by Kununurra Waringarri Aboriginal Corporation. The Shelter open from 4pm to 8am, five days a week.
