Community Housing

What is Community Housing?

Community Housing is one of a number of affordable housing options in South Australia. For more information about your housing options, please ring Housing SA’s Contact Centre on 131 299. You can also visit your local Housing SA office.

Community housing is an alternative to public housing and caters for people on very low to moderate incomes, who are or may be in rental stress or face barriers to entry into the private housing market.  It provides secure, affordable, long term rental housing for people with specific needs; including people who have experienced homelessness, the aged, Aboriginal people, people with a disability, survivors of domestic violence, people from non-English speaking backgrounds and low-income families and individuals. Community Housing is managed by not-for-profit organisations and provides a variety of living arrangements depending on the needs and preferences of the tenant household.
