Haven; Home, Safe is Australia’s only integrated affordable rental housing and homelessness services provider. We are a for-purpose organisation.
We are a for-purpose company, with our roots established 40 years ago in Bendigo. Through our relentless commitment to help and house more of the most vulnerable people in our community, we have achieved 24 years of continuous growth, became the first Victorian Registered Housing Association, and have developed our network of offices across the state to connect with housing options and integrated supports.
We now offer a variety of housing and support services to people in housing crisis across 29 Local Government Areas in Victoria, stretching through the regions from Mildura to Frankston, Warrnambool to Wodonga, including the metro areas in the North Eastern suburbs of Melbourne and down through Geelong.
Through our breadth of locations, quality and variety of our houses we strive to offer our tenants homes that they can be proud of in locations that meet their needs and in communities they feel welcome.
In short, we strive to change the trajectory of people’s lives.
In a world where homelessness and housing crisis exist, we connect people with housing options and integrated supports so that they can find and keep a place to call home.
