Getting A Home

Salvation Army Housing (SAH) is a not-for-profit housing company providing affordable and social housing and other assistance to eligible individuals and families who are on low to moderate incomes in Australia.

As a company we manage over 1,500 properties as well as providing a range of services from our Head Office in Melbourne and regional offices in Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania.

Our Housing Service

SAH provides the community housing services:  social housing under housing pathways.

Our Partnerships

We also work with a range of non-government and government services in the local area to help people access the services and support services they need.

Our Mission

Our mission is to assist individuals experiencing social disadvantage and to establish and maintain safe, affordable, secure tenancies through the management of a range of high quality housing options.


Rent is based on a percentage of your income, and this is generally 25% of the household’s gross income excluding rent assistance.  When offered a property, you will be asked to provide a written income declaration; your rent will be calculated on this amount, plus 100% Commonwealth Rent Assistance (CRA) where eligible. 

Rental Payments

SAH provides a wide range of payment options for tenants to pay their rent.
