The Metro Community Housing Cooperative Limited is a community based Housing Association, which commenced in 2007 when the Marrickville Area Community Housing Cooperative and Resaman (Men’s Housing) merged to form Metro Community Housing Cooperative (MCHC).
Our Mission Statement is to create a better community
Share By assisting to provide housing and offer related resources to the people of the Inner West area of Sydney who are in high need
By providing a range of self managed, affordable, quality, secure housing
By linking up with other housing and community service providers through participation in the housing sector and broader political process
Metro is primarily funded by the Community, Homes and Place Division FACS – this is a section of the NSW Department of Family and Community Services.
The organisation is incorporated as an independent, non-profit, co-operative of members. All Metro tenants are eligible to become members of the co-operative. The Board strongly encourages tenants and other people with an interest in the activities of the co-operative or in the social housing sector to become a member. There is no fee to become a member and members can participate in decision making activities or get involved in particular areas of interest such as policy reviews, or representing the interests of Metro tenants in broader social housing forums. The only requirement for ongoing membership is to meet the “active membership” provisions by attending at least one meeting of the co-operative each year – normally this would be the Annual General Meeting held in November. If you are interested in becoming a member, please click here to view the AGM page where you will find an application form.
In addition to being a fully accredited housing association, the organisation is registered by the Registrar of Community Housing as a Tier 2 Provider.
