Home in Place delivers many services in addition to their housing function to support tenants in maintaining their tenancies, to create sustainable housing communities and enable residents to access wider services provided by partner agencies.
One way we achieve this is by the creation of community hubs which offer tenants and their communities a place to meet, socialise and volunteer.
The hubs host several tenant and community events including free lunches, cheap groceries, holiday commemorations, school holiday programs, community garden activities and sporting programs.
Importantly, the hubs also provide a welcoming base for local support agencies to offer outreach services to tenants and their communities. These services include, but are not limited to, education, training and employment programs, job readiness workshops, financial literacy and counselling, mental health programs, legal advice and healthy cooking workshops.
Community hubs make an important contribution to the sense of community experienced by tenants and contribute directly to our community development vision.
