Mariam, Sydney

We are really appreciative that this property, and CHL, allows us to have affordable, stable and secure accommodation


Mariam and her family moved into their affordable housing property at CHL’s Woodville complex Sydney in November 2014.

Prior to this the family were living in a make shift home provided by relatives that was a converted garage which had no cooking facilities and all other amenities were outside.

Mariam could not believe her luck when she was approved and offered the property at Woodville Road. The family are now enjoying their 2 bedroom property with all the correct amenities.

“This has changed my life completely” she said, “I can now afford to put my son in child care, he is really happy as he has his own bedroom, we can save to go on family holidays, this is a place we can now call home. We are really appreciative that this property, and CHL, allows us to have affordable, stable and secure accommodation. ”

Mariam is pregnant again with her second child and this was only possible due to the fact they are now living in affordable accommodation, “This would never have happened if we were still living in the garage” Mariam stated.

In the past few weeks Mariam has gained permanent part-time employment that has further improved the family’s quality of life and a more stable future.
