Churches Housing Inc.
We welcome the opportunity to educate, encourage and assist churches to investigate your local areas to provide assistance to meet the diverse housing needs of your local communities, especially in areas of high need with housing stress.
We all know that having a safe, secure place to live is one of the most basic human rights, and something that most of us take for granted. Churches have a commitment to improve the living standards of those on the margins of society; to call their own members and the wider society to advocate for justice; to work in partnership with government and the community to meet agreed social objectives and improve the fabric of society.
We believe that churches have the potential to make a significant contribution to the delivery of housing outcomes, as well as an understanding of the support needs of those who require such housing. Churches have a deep commitment to placing greatest attention towards those most in need in the community.
The NSW government has a range of partnership strategies to provide housing for people in need. The benefit to your church or organisation is that you will maintain title over the land and the Government may be able to help fund the development of the project.
Within this new strategy, a range of models will be developed to suit different combinations of partner contributions and security mechanisms. This will also enable us to increase the supply of new community housing and address housing affordability.
One of Churches Housing’s roles as a peak organisation is to represent the church sector and communicate your views and concerns to the Community Housing Division of Housing NSW, our funding body.
Churches Housing is funded by the the Community Housing Division of Housing NSW
