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.
