Mission Australia CEO reveals Duke Street social home plans and calls for more social and affordable housing
Mission Australia’s CEO, James Toomey will be in Coffs Harbour on Wednesday 1 July to reveal Mission Australia Housing’s plans for their new social home apartments on Duke Street in Coffs Harbour’s CBD. While releasing the artist impressions of the development, Mr Toomey will also be encouraging locals to join the Everybody’s Home campaign which calls for more social and affordable homes and a national plan to end homelessness.
Construction of the 40 one-bedroom social home apartments will commence in the second half of 2020 and will be completed in 2021. At full capacity the complex will house 40 individuals in need of a safe, secure place to call home.
Contributing to the stock of much needed social and affordable housing for those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in the region, the development is part of Mission Australia Housing’s footprint of more than 1,428 social and affordable homes across the Mid North Coast.
Mission Australia CEO James Toomey said: “This exciting new development will provide vital community infrastructure that will contribute much needed homes in Coffs Harbour.
“It will be centrally located with access to shops, services and transport, allowing residents ease of access to education, transport, jobs and services in the area.
“The two indoor communal rooms for tenants to share and run activities, as well as outdoor areas for resident initiatives such as community gardens, will be important places that will support residents to maintain their wellbeing and connect with their local community.[/vc_column_text][nectar_btn size="medium" open_new_tab="true" button_style="regular" button_color_2="Accent-Color" icon_family="none" text="Read the article" url="https://www.missionaustralia.com.au/housing/news/916-mission-australia-ceo-reveals-duke-street-social-home-plans-and-calls-for-more-social-and-affordable-housing"][/vc_column][/vc_row]
