Joanne Hurst Client Success, In the Media

Central Australian Affordable Housing Company was primarily established to provide tenancy management on the 16 Town Camps in Alice Springs, but they continue to expand and grow their portfolio to include many more housing options for Aboriginal people in the Region. There are 270 properties in the A16 Alice Springs Town Camps. CAAH also provides housing for over 80 households in the town of Alice Springs.

CAAH specialises in housing for Aboriginal people and provide housing targeting a range of tenant needs; including seniors, renal, high needs and working families.

Additionally CAAH manages housing related projects and consultancies for Aboriginal groups in Central Australia and Remote South Australia; including a water infrastructure project, property refurbishments for special needs groups and assistance forming and managing community controlled housing.

Earlier this year CAAH went through a re accreditation process managed by Global-Mark under the National Community Housing Standards.  CAAH strives to be a benchmark community housing organisation in the Northern Territory, setting standards so that all stakeholders have confidence in CAAH’s practice, financial performance, service delivery and strategic direction. CAAH is proud to be the only accredited community housing provider in the Northern Territory and is working with other organisations to promote good practice and encourage accreditation. CAAH found the re accreditation process important in reviewing standards, revising policies and developing procedures for their new and emerging client base.
