Transitional Housing with support of Wunan Foundation

The objective of this program is to bring about positive social change for Aboriginal people and their families by providing housing and program services 


CHL received transfer of management of 40 new units in Kununurra, East Kimberley from the Department of Housing WA under the East Kimberley Development Program.

CHL is working in partnership with Wunan Foundation and is responsible for the ongoing tenancy and asset management of these units. This program is centered on assisting those who are attempting to enter the workforce where the cost of accommodation inhibits sustaining employment or enabling people to pursue home ownership opportunities.

The 40 unit development comprises of the one and two bedrooms units.

With CHL providing tenancy management and maintenance services, these homes are termed ‘transitional’ because the goal of the program is to have properties available for purchase by residents when their financial and personal capacity is such that they are ready to transition to alternative tenures, including shared equity or private home ownership.

The objective of this program is to bring about positive social change for Aboriginal people and their families by providing housing and program services that support participants to take control of their future. The support model looks to intensively engage people in employment and also educate through case management, internal and external service providers.

The residents are supported in undertaking this change to their lives and housing tenure by the Wunan Foundation.
