Rooming Houses

Rooming Houses are generally singles accommodation where residents rent a room in the house and share common facilities such as kitchens, bathrooms and laundries.  Many rooming houses are now being renovated so that the rooms become self-contained with their own kitchenette and bathroom.

These properties function to house the most marginalised individuals who have often been sleeping rough and are making the first step in adjusting to stable housing.

Within the spectrum of community housing properties, it is rooming houses that are directly dealing with chronic homelessness and look to assist often single people in adjusting to more stable living. These individuals will rent a bedroom and share common facilities.
