Our plans for 2016 and 2017

CCMI and Housing SA have recently agreed on a major repairs and maintenance plan to create up to ten extra bedrooms, to upgrade kitchens, bathrooms, floor coverings and electrical wiring, and to paint internal walls and woodwork throughout. The SA Minister for Social Housing, Hon Zoe Bettison, has approved approved the budget to undertake this project over two State Budget years, 2015/2016 and 2016/2017.

Projects for the near future

  • Upgrade furniture and equipment in residents’ rooms
  • Install photovoltaic electricity systems to reduce our substantial power bills
  • Provide more recreation and common room facilities
  • Provide “starter kits” (basic household goods – linen; cookware; cleaning materials) to residents moving on to private accommodation
  • Provide supervised private accommodation in suburban flats as a first stage for tenants on transition to independent living 
  • Create better “stitched together” tenant support: improve networking and liaison with other Adelaide homelessness agencies
