Affordable Housing Foundation
Why has the Foundation been established?
There are many people in our region who have difficulty affording to pay for suitable accommodation to live in. This is usually due to a combination of reasons, including both the high cost of renting a property, and the high percentage of people in our region who are on low incomes.
The Foundation has been established to provide a permanent source of funding that will assist in meeting the urgent and growing need for adequate affordable housing.
Who will the Foundation assist?
The Foundation will assist people who are disadvantaged in some way and are unable to afford to pay normal market rent. We have strict eligibility guidelines that will be followed to ensure that we operate in a very fair and equitable manner.
We will assist people like Jenny, a single Mum with 2 children under 5 yrs of age.
Jenny was married to a violent man who mistreated her and the children, until they finally escaped and moved to the North Coast of NSW to start a new life. Due to her husbands drinking, the family had no savings, so Jenny had to start her new life from ‘scratch’. She is now living with her parents in their 2 bedroom house. Both Jenny’s children have frequent nightmares and one has a medical condition that requires expensive medication. Jenny has been trying really hard to find her family their own home, but hasn’t been able to find a property to rent that will leave her with enough money to pay her other living expenses. Her parent’s patience is wearing thin and relationships have become very strained.
