About us

About us

Homes North acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the traditional owners of the land upon which we work and live across the New England North West, and we pay our respects to elders past and present.

At Homes North we pride ourselves on: Strengthening Communities, Supporting Individuals and Providing Excellent Service, and we are preparing ourselves for the next stage of growth.

Our vision at Homes North is for the wellbeing of our community. We develop and manage affordable, secure and sensitively managed homes and work in partnership to create vibrant, inclusive communities. Our business is about connecting people and places, creating new opportunities and we take a place based approach to advocate for, coordinate and partner with the services that people in our community need.

 

With over 30 years’ experience in the New England North West region of NSW, Homes North provides a place to call home for over 1924 people.  We strive for an integrated approach to housing that includes community and consumer involvement with consideration of necessary facilities, amenities, opportunities and community supports.

 

Our organisation works to achieve a just and equitable distribution and access to housing resources in NSW, participating in planning and implementation of housing policies at all levels of government to develop and expand community based non-profit housing programmes.

 

Our objectives are:

  • to work for the prevention of the further loss of accommodation for low income earners and the associated escalation in accommodation costs which is causing dispossession and displacement of these people
  • to raise public awareness and understanding of the social contexts within which people become homeless or poorly housed
  • to encourage the involvement of tenants in the management of their own housing
  • focus on the housing needs of those population groups discriminated against in the private rental market and/or excluded from other public housing programmes.
