We are an organisation with a commitment to addressing housing affordability, tackling homelessness, and fostering housing stability. Rural Housing is known for our progressive and compassionate approach to working with people experiencing homelessness and housing disadvantage.
We are the largest social and community housing organisation within the Hume region of Victoria, providing housing to over 950 people in our community. We own or manage over 700 properties including long term community housing and transitional housing.
We are the main entry point for the homelessness system and provide a range of supports for people at homeless or at risk of homelessness. Each year we see over 4000 people in need of assistance to secure or maintain their housing.
We have over 50 skilled staff supporting offices in Wodonga, Wangaratta, Shepparton and Seymour. We also provide outreach to Wallan, Broadford, Kilmore, Alexandra, Yea, Myrtleford, Yarrawonga, Cobram and Benalla.
Rural Housing is registered with the Victorian Registrar for Housing agencies and we have achieved accreditation for the Department of Human Services Standards.
