Homelessness and housing stress is a rapidly growing problem in Australia with over 105, 000 people homeless and over 16,000 of these are children. 'We fundamentally believe it’s everyone’s right to a home, somewhere they can feel safe, secure and engage with the community. By providing person centred wrap around housing support solutions our tenants can commence their Journey Home® with a real opportunity to build a better life they can realise their potential as an individual and active member of the community'.
As a community-minded and community-driven organisation, Evolve Housing is actively involved in housing projects and community initiatives that deliver sustainable design and provide for long term viability. Drawing on our sector experience and knowledge, we ensure housing designs provide functional longevity by being energy efficient, greener, accessible and adaptable. Our SAIF and RASAID developments are recognised to meet this criteria by achieving Livable Housing Platinum Level Compliance. Evolve Housing was the first under the Supported Accommodation Innovation Fund (SAIF) initiative to be awarded the Platinum Performance Level compliance and has since achieved Livable Housing Guidelines Platinum Level compliance on other developments.
Evolve Housing believes that the provision of community and resident engagement programs is as important as providing homes. Through partnership Evolve Housing has a 'Training People for life' program to help residents gain professional and life skills that can help them cross the social and economic divide. 'Breaking the cycle of worklessness' residents have a greater opportunity to engage in their community promoting social inclusion and delivering positive social and economic outcomes that are both sustainable and beneficial to the community.
Evolve Housing is well positioned through strong financial planning and risk management to maximise opportunities that increase housing supply in Australia and deliver our mission of being a major contributor to the relief of housing stress.
