Partnering with Other Organisations

Women’s Housing Company (WHC) has a commitment to provide housing for disadvantaged single women with high needs. To achieve this, we engage in partnerships with support agencies that provide support to women while Women’s Housing Company provides accommodation and tenancy management.

 

Women's Homelessness Support Service

WHC is the lead agent for a single women's homelessness service in south western Sydney, the Women's Homelessness Support Service (WHSS).  WHSS delivers services to single women over 18 years of age who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.  The service is provided in partnership with the Community Restorative Centre (CRC) and particularly targets women leaving NSW Correctional Centres or with a history of criminal justice system involvement, and women experiencing domestic and family violence.  WHSS provides both accommodation and support, and outreach support.

 

Specialist Homelessness Services Partnerships

WHC also works in partnership with a diverse range of organisations and as part of the Specialist Homelessness Services Program has formal support partnerships in place with:

    • Wesley Mission
    • WYCA
    • St Vincent de Paul
    • Launchpad

 

Connect 100

In 2015, WHC received funding from the Department of Family and Community Services to provide subsidised accommodation in the private rental market for people in the inner city who are homeless. The Connect 100 program joins up housing and support services for people who are chronically homeless in the inner city, and funding support is also provided by the City of Sydney. Under the program, WHC and other inner city community housing providers are working with support services to house homeless people in sustainable tenancies. 

 

Networking with other agencies

In addition, Women's Housing Company is engaged in a number of agency networks and works with a range of organisations to improve housing and support outcomes for single women.
