Community Housing

Safe and suitable housing is a basic foundation.

Our experienced Housing team support people to access long term secure housing options, including social and affordable housing.  We assist local people in need of more immediate housing, through government programs such as Temporary Accommodation, Rentstart Bond Loans and Start Safely.

 

As a registered nationally accredited Community Housing provider, Momentum manage over 270 properties and provide a range of housing options within the community.

 

Our range of housing options enable us to provide a whole range of solutions for people – from private rental assistance and providing Community Housing, through to 24/7 in-home care. Our experienced Housing Consultants ensure people are supported and involved in the decisions about their housing needs.

 

Many of our housing options create opportunities for independent living, while still providing a safe environment and access to on-site support. Depending on individual needs, we can also help people transition to increased independence as their living skills are developed, or access increased support without the upheaval of relocation.

 

MEET MARGARET & BETTY

Margaret and Betty are two of the original tenants of Momentum Collective’s community housing property in Tweed Heads South. Built as part of former Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s nation building strategy, the doors to the properties opened in November 2010. Both Margaret and Betty are keen gardeners and over the years they have improved and maintained not only their own gardens but the communal areas as well. “I have lived here since it opened nine years ago,” Margaret says. “I think both Betty and I appreciate this wonderful gift of housing. We both treat our units as if they were our own. I feel lucky to be here because at the time I moved in I was caring for my husband and brother so it was a small miracle.”
