Our boarding houses provide a safe and secure accommodation entry point for single people who are at risk of homelessness because of a range of factors including family breakdown; unemployment; domestic violence; drug and alcohol misuse; low income and social isolation.
Our four boarding houses range from room-only with shared facilities through to self-contained units with kitchenettes and an ensuite bathroom. They are generally a transitional housing option enabling people to build their capacity and move into more stable and independent accommodation options within the community.
Boarding houses provide an opportunity to build confidence and a sense of wellbeing, participate in community life and further develop independent living skills.
Unity Housing has four boarding houses located in the inner city of Adelaide:
- The Terrace is a mixed gender site with 95 rooms (staffed 24/7)
- Citi Hall is a male-only site with six rooms
- Gilles Lodge is a female-only site with 11 rooms
- Hurtle Square is a female-only site with five rooms
We work closely with our support partner agencies to facilitate successful tenancies. Boarding house tenants can access both in-house and community-based support and assistance including financial counselling; legal assistance; recreation and leisure activities; cooking and nutrition and health management.
