Tenant Stories in Their Own Words

After my marriage broke down I moved nine times in 14 months. I was in and out of some very scary and inappropriate housing. Then I got a place in Unity’s boarding house, The Terrace. The staff there literally saved my sanity and my life. Over time, they helped me regain my confidence to create a stable life for myself. Now I’m in my own home within Unity’s community housing program.

The thing my family and I appreciate about Unity is that they are so easy to talk to. Unity is very accommodating – their staff members are approachable and very nice people.

Unity Housing has given me peace of mind and stability regarding a home and a place to live. My area is very safe and handy regarding my location to bus stops and shops. I love my home and suburb and am very grateful to Unity.

I am very happy with my experience of being a Unity Housing tenant. I have always found staff very friendly, approachable and understanding. We have experienced no difficulties with our property, and minor repairs have been completed efficiently and effectively. I also took my children to the tenants' family party, which was a nice way to touch base with staff and other tenants. I do often access the website to see what is available. I am very happy to be a Unity Housing tenant.”

Living in our own family home that is wheelchair accessible gives us security, which means we can settle into normal family life again. When the call came from Unity that a new house was available, we felt like we had one the lottery and couldn't believe it was for real.

Unity's staff have done nothing but help me. They treat everyone with respect because they know that life is messy- it isn't a perfect, clear path for everyone.

I have found over the six years I have been a tenant there has been excellent communication between tenants and Unity Housing. And where there have been issues they have been addressed and resolved.
