Formed in 2008 through the transfer of assets from a number of like-minded and highly respected South Australian housing organisations, Unity Housing was established as a direct response to housing affordability challenges. Unity Housing’s specific strategic goal was to create new housing opportunities for people otherwise unable to access the housing market.
To this day, we continue to deliver this work providing quality property and tenancy management services to people who are vulnerable and have high needs – the homeless, the aged, people living with disability and those experiencing mental illness.
Through our management of more than 3,000 properties, we provide people with access to a wide range of housing options, including community, affordable, transitional, disability housing and boarding house accommodation.
Many of our tenants require tenancy and social support to sustain their occupancy, and live in a diverse range of property types. We understand housing must be tailored to the needs of the individual, so we offer a broad spectrum of housing, ranging from accommodation for people with disabilities who need high levels of support, to people who simply need the right housing in the right place for the right price.
Unity harnesses community, government, private and not-for-profit resources to develop innovative housing solutions. Our properties are located in the Adelaide metro and Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula, Murraylands, Eyre Peninsula, Mid North and South East.
Our housing model aims to:
• Increase housing supply with the assistance of a multitude of partners including developers, financiers and support agencies
• Deliver flexible housing services that are responsive to diverse tenant needs
• Encourage and foster positive outcomes for tenants and the community including social inclusion and community engagement
