At SOUTHERN CROSS COMMUNITY HOUSING we take pride in the partnerships we have grown within the Koori Community; we work very closely with organisations that are making a major difference to individual’s health and well being.  Because we recognise the difficulties sometimes faced when applying for housing, we offer support and encouragement by engaging advocates from community groups when needed.  By listing the following contact details and services provided within your community, we put you one step closer to making that connection with them……..
