Join one of the NT’s leading Aboriginal controlled community housing providers and lead the establishment of a new, community driven, transitional housing program.
The Central Australian Affordable Housing Company (CAAH) is an Aboriginal controlled, not-for-profit, registered community-housing provider in Alice Springs. CAAH manages over 350 properties across the Town Camps and urban areas of Alice Springs, providing social and affordable housing to over 1800 residents.
The 34 South Terrace Transitional Housing Program (the Program) is a new program for CAAH which is due to be established from July 2020. The Program is funded by the Department of Local Government, Housing and Community Development (NT Housing) and is due to run until June 2024.
The aim of the Program is to reduce homelessness and build the capacity and skills of participants by providing medium to long term (12-18 months) transitional accommodation in a supportive community environment. The target groups for the Program are:
Importantly, the Program will be developed using a community development approach, to not only focus on housing, but, also on community engagement and client support through case management.
The Community and Support Coordinator will be pivotal during first phase of the Program, overseeing the detailed design of the program and engaging with key stakeholders, such as the Tangentyere Women and Family Safety Group (TWFSG), NT Housing and newly housed residents.
As the Program is developed, the Community and Support Coordinator will be responsible for overseeing delivery of the program, such as facilitating the Community Reference Group, managing a small team, developing partnerships with external support providers and stakeholders, overseeing critical case management issues and delivering on program reporting requirements.
