Our Partnerships

Metro is committed to developing and sustaining effective and comprehensive partnerships. 

 

By working in partnership with community organisations Metro Community Housing strengthens its capacity to respond to the needs of people in urgent housing need. Metro see partnerships as vital to providing holistic support to people in high housing stress.

Metro Community Housing has partnerships with a number of community based agencies who provide a range of support services to their clients through the Transitional Housing programs. Transitional Housing programs offer tenancies for periods between 3-24 months. This period provides secure and affordable accommodation whilst offering tenants an opportunity to develop independent living skills or return to study/employment before tenants exit into more permanent accommodation.

The categories of people in transitional housing we are currently assisting are:

  • Families at imminent risk of/or who are homeless
  • Young people (under 25) at imminent risk of/or who are homeless

  • Women and their children exiting crisis refuges

  • People with a psychiatric disability

  • People exiting the criminal justice system

  • People exiting alcohol and other drug rehabilitation programs
