Message from the Chair
Carrington Cottages Management Ltd is a registered not-for-profit association that provides boarding house accommodation for men who are transitioning from homelessness to independent living. Located in two, recently renovated, nineteenth century terrace houses in Carrington Street Adelaide, Carrington Cottages has sixty single bedrooms, with tenants sharing kitchens, bathrooms and backyard recreation areas. We aim to provide a supportive environment for men who have been homeless to rebuild their skills, confidence and motivation to move on to independent living.
Carrington Cottages receives no direct government funding; we use the rent paid by our tenants to run the boarding house. The SA Government indirectly supports our organisation by leasing the two buildings to us at an affordable rent. The Commonwealth Government pays our tenants on pensions a rental subsidy that enables us to keep the rent we charge at a reasonable level.
Please look around our web site. We are always looking for friends to work with us in supporting homeless men in Adelaide. If you would like to help, please send me an email.
