How We Began

The Housing Trust was formed in the Illawarra in 1983 to prevent homelessness by providing community housing.


Our roots are in the Illawarra

  • The Illawarra is a strong and cohesive community and we are part of that fabric
  • This strong connection with our community influences our outlook and our priorities
  • We take seriously our local social, economic and environmental responsibilities

From our beginnings we are now the second-largest housing provider in the Illawarra and deliver subsidised rental homes to over 2000 people, with almost 1100 properties from Thirroul to Nowra.
