We employ a range of experienced staff at all of our sites to facilitate the smooth running of our community housing. This includes:
An on-site Housing Manager.
A Tailored Support Coordinator who supports tenants and household members with access to a range of individualised services to improve their wellbeing and achieve their goals.
Administration support for efficient tenancy management, and maintenance personnel responsible for maintaining the buildings and grounds.
What Types Of Housing Do We Offer?
This type of housing provides affordable housing in convenient locations for people with low to moderate incomes, particularly those who may be key workers. The rent may be based on a set proportion of the household income or discounted market rent, and you apply directly to BaptistCare to access this housing. Visit our How to Apply page for more details.
Social housing is for people on low incomes and requires the tenant to meet eligibility criteria set by the Department of Community and Justice Housing (DCJ). Applications for social housing are made directly to DCJ. Visit our How to Apply page for more details.
Our transitional housing provides a secure and supportive environment where women and their children can overcome the trauma of domestic and family violence, and begin to rebuild their life. Our professional case workers work in partnership with each woman, offering individual counselling as well as a range of ongoing educational, financial and parenting programs tailored to meet their needs, as well as support for the children.
Together we work with women towards transitioning to more permanent housing, in social housing, community housing, or the private rental market. Applications for our transitional housing are made with a referral, via a support service provider.

Our housing for seniors and single parent families is located across New South Wales, from Goulburn in the south to Lismore in the north.
