6. All assets or funds of the organisation will be used solely to further the objectives of the organisation, and no portion of those funds will be paid or distributed to members except as compensation for out of pocket expenses. facilities are managed through the local Branch of CSP.

Currently CSP manages one residential house (Perry Irwin House, Nundah) and five units at Bowen Hills, Woolloongabba, Annerley and Toowong.

All residences have been made available by the Queensland Police Service to provide emergency accommodation in Brisbane to police and their immediate families in times of crisis and trauma.

Funds raised by the organisation in Brisbane help to maintain these facilities. There is a very high occupancy rate for all emergency accommodation which reflects the ongoing need for such facilities across the State.

Housing is also located in Toowoomba, Townsville, Rockhampton, Cairns and Mareeba.
