Transitional Housing Management
SalvoCare Social Housing is co-located with SalvoCare in Leongatha and Quantum Support Services in Warragul. SalvoCare's Social Housing is committed to providing a range of safe and affordable accommodation options to give eligible people an opportunity to stabilise their circumstances before moving to longer term housing.
As well as providing professional tenancy and property management services, access to specialist support can be offered when necessary to assist people to address any issues that may have contributed to their situation. This is provided by support programs managed by SalvoCare and Quantum Support Services
SalvoCare Social Housing manages 43 Transitional Housing properties (THM’s) across South Gippsland, Bass Coast and Baw Baw shires. These short term properties are used to house families or individuals who are in a housing crisis but an appropriate exit plan is an important part of the application process. Applications are prioritised according to need and availability of appropriate properties
People moving into transitional housing have often been through a change in circumstance. For example, a lost job has meant the rent can’t be paid, a marriage break-up leaves one partner with no money or support, or a person may lose the support of – or can no longer live with – other family members.
Individuals are provided with a housing support program that offers advice and planning in the areas where assistance is needed. A key element of transitional housing is that it's a temporary option, and tenants must actively work with their support worker to attain long-term housing (eg public housing, community housing or private rental).
