Mallee Accommodation & Support Program (MASP) is pleased to announce the successful completion of the “Sunnyside Living” project, a collaborative effort with the Victorian government to address the critical need for social housing in Mildura.
The $2.5 million development, comprising 13 one-bedroom homes, is now available to provide stable long-term housing for those who need it most.
Partnering with CNB Constructions, MASP has expanded the availability of social housing in Mildura, offering a lifeline for individuals facing homelessness, abuse, poverty, or disadvantage.
“The Sunnyside Living project represents a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to provide essential support to those in our community facing housing insecurity.” MASP Acting CEO Helena Moore says.
“These 13 new homes not only offer shelter but hope and a chance for individuals to rebuild their lives.”
Tenants will have access to MASP’s holistic, wraparound services, aligning with MASP’s Therapeutic Model of Care.
“We are grateful for the ongoing support of the Victorian government, whose commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals in the region is evident in their grant funding and collaborative efforts,” added Ms Moore.
Looking ahead, MASP has ambitious plans to address the housing needs of the community further. By mid-2024, the organisation aims to complete three new social housing projects in central Mildura, focusing on supporting young people to live independently and those on the Victorian Housing Register.
These initiatives are made possible through grant funding from the Victorian Government’s $50 million Youth Housing Capital Grants program and the Social Housing Grant Fund.
