Ecclesia Housing is a unique provider of housing and management services with a particular focus on the disadvantaged, and those with high support needs. It works in close partnership with the church welfare sector as well as private developers.
What We Do:
Ecclesia Housing is a not for profit company and our portfolio of properties is a mix of supported and general tenancies with support provided by church and welfare agencies. A major focus of our service delivery is in partnership with the Christian Churches of NSW.
Ecclesia Housing will continue to suppor the work of churches within our community that are working with the disadvantaged in the area of housing needs.
Working closely through the “peak agency” role played by Churches Community Housing, we will bring a level of practical experience and expertise that will assist churches as they plan and work with in this sector.
Ecclesia Housing was originally part of Churches Housing.
Churches Housing Inc (CHI) was established in 1996 to assist churches and church welfare organisations to develop housing initiatives for individuals and families on low incomes in partnership with the State Government. Churches Housing supports church groups in their mission of compassion and justice as they seek to follow Christ’s example to care for those who are most disadvantaged.
Churches Housing also originally managed a portfolio of community housing properties.
In 2010, Churches Housing split its functions and Ecclesia Housing Limited was separately incorporated as a not-for-profit company with charitable status in NSW.
We house and employ people of all faiths and of none.
Today, Ecclesia Housing has 400 tenancies and our properties are across Sydney, the NSW Central Coast, and Newcastle
Ecclesia Housing merged with Amelie Housing in May 2018
