David & MallerlyIan & FayeJenni

David and Mallerly were welcomed as the tenants of the 2,000th NAHC-NRAS dwelling. The couple met and married in Columbia where David was working at the time. The couple decided to move back to Australia to raise their two children but were concerned about the high cost of living. Mallerly and David, who works in the community sector, were approved for NRAS and their family is now settled into their bayside suburban home.

Ian has been employed as a groundskeeper for many years and his wife Faye is happily retired. Unfortunately, the bank repossessed the rental house they were living in and the couple was forced to move out immediately. They were quickly referred into the NRAS Scheme and approved for a brand new house in Cosgrove. Upon approval, Ian and Faye discovered that their eldest daughter and her family were building their own home right down the street. The couple is very comfortable in their new home and is looking forward to living so close to their family.

For three years, Jenni lived with her two children in an NAHC-NRAS house in Townsville. When Jenni decided to move to the Sunshine Coast to be closer to family, she was referred to NAHC’s Brisbane office which was able to find her a newly constructed home near her family.

NAHC is working with The Lady Musgrave Trust and Micah Projects to help tackle homelessness.

The Lady Musgrave Trust provides accommodation and support for young women in need and has created the partnership with Micah and NAHC to help provide support for young women in domestic violence situations and who are facing homelessness. NAHC is managing the accommodation on behalf of the trust.

According to Karen Lyon Reid (CEO at The Lady Musgrave Trust), a key benefit of the partnership is that it increases the Trust’s reach, enabling it to support more young women and their children with accommodation and support services.
