At , we don’t just advocate for social and affordable housing – we demonstrate our commitment by building it ourselves.
In the last two years we have invested more than $200 million to build more than 500 new social and affordable housing units across NSW. While the units are built, owned and maintained, they are rented to tenants under contract with the NSW Government’s Social and Affordable Housing Fund (SAHF).
Vinnies Shops Re Opening
‘social and affordable housing is brand new, well equipped and fits in well with its local neighbourhoods. Through the SAHF, all our tenants are supported to ensure their needs are met, and to help them achieve their individual goals. We not only offer a home, but the comprehensive support that people in difficult situations need to build a better life. The program has already changed the lives of people like Deb, who said “if it wasn’t for it, I’d be on the streets”.
We opened 4 new residences in July, bringing the total number to 10. In August and November this year, two more residences will be opened.
Our latest completed block of apartments is in Jordan Springs, near Penrith in Sydney’s western suburbs. Opened just a few weeks ago, the building contains 36 beautiful, brand new units. NSW Minister for Communities and Justice, Gareth Ward MP, attended the opening along with other valued supporters.
Other completed apartment complexes are in Dubbo, Penrith, Campbelltown, Merrylands, Lilyfield, Burraneer, Maitland, and two in Albury. The remaining two buildings almost completed are in Katoomba and Cardiff.

“These were unsuitable for many of these tenants due to issues such as accessibility and access to support, as well as the financial stress caused by expensive private renting.”
“In addition to managing the physical buildings and sites, they provide case management services to tenants,” said the St Vincent de Paul Housing spokesperson.
“All are designed to the silver level for accessibility with eight designed to further cater for tenants with disabilities,” said the St Vincent de Paul Housing spokesperson.
Scholarship Grants And Financial Aid
A former church on the site has been converted into a community space for the benefit of tenants and volunteers.
The St Vincent de Paul Housing spokesman said its “main point of difference” from other community housing was the work of its “local Vinnies volunteers”.
“At St Faith’s, support workers and local volunteers will provide help to tenants to access support services, help with furniture, transport to essential needs such as health care, outings and visits, and most of all friendship,” he said.
“We are delighted to reopen the St Faith’s site as a seniors’ accommodation and continue its proud history of helping the people of Dubbo,” he said.
Agenda Of Council Meeting
NSW Minister for Social Housing Pru Goward said the SAHF shows what can be achieved when the government works closely with agencies to deliver “great outcomes for vulnerable people”.
“By adopting a collaborative approach, the Government and St Vincent de Paul Housing are helping people break the cycle of disadvantage and move towards greater independence,” the minister said.
St Vincent de Paul Housing will build the rest of the 500 homes in Penrith, South Albury, Campbelltown, Lilyfield, Jordan Springs, Albury, Burraneer, Merrylands, Katoomba, Cardiff and Maitland.
