Our approach is grounded in the belief that good housing is paramount to people’s lives. Our work is underpinned by the following values:

  • People living with disability are able to exercise personal authority (Personhood). We look for opportunities for people living with disability and their families to exercise control over key decisions in their lives as they relate to their dwelling and tenancy.
  • People living with disability are active citizens in the life of the community (Citizenhood). We focus on advancing and upholding housing designs and locations which place people living with disability as valued members of community life alongside their non-disabled peers.
  • The capacity of people living with disability is enhanced, at the level of the individual, and the family and the community (Capacity Building). We design dwelling features which enhance individuals’ capacity, reducing their reliance on external personal support.

Our practices are continually improved as we explore what it means to be a good social landlord in an environment where tenants often rely on a separate support provider entering their home to assist with daily living tasks.

Minda Housing has been established with the aim to be a leader in the provision of sustainable housing for people with disability.

Salvation Army Housing is the housing arm of The Salvation Army; a well-known international Christian organisation. Salvation Army Housing is one of the largest provider of homelessness services across the country. We provide services to adults, and families with accompanying children. Our services include accommodation, case management, assertive outreach support, financial assistance, together with connection and referral to other specialist services. Our philosophy is that every person is afforded dignity, respect and quality of service and that no one should be without a safe, affordable and secure home.

Homelessness can affect anyone – it doesn’t discriminate. People find themselves in unstable home situations that can range from uncomfortable to distressing and dangerous. Services, such as ours, try to help people experiencing homelessness find a permanent and safe place to live, a positive community connection, and services to help the underlying reasons for the person’s homelessness.

How We Make a Difference:

We believe that having safe, secure and affordable housing is a human right. Without a home, a person’s ability to access and maintain employment, education, training, family and social networks, health and wellbeing can be very difficult, and often impossible, further exacerbating the situation.

Salvation Army Housing recognises that the experience of homelessness in itself is traumatic, and that once someone has had one experience of homelessness, they are at increased risk of experiencing a further episodes. We therefore work to ensure that any experience of homelessness is short and quickly resolved.

Salvation Army Housing also works to support and assist people into long term sustainable housing.
