BeyondHousing is an organisation committed to addressing housing affordability, tackling homelessness, and fostering housing stability. We are known for our progressive and compassionate approach to working with people experiencing homelessness and housing disadvantage.
What We Do
We are the largest community housing organisation within the Goulburn and Ovens Murray regions of Victoria, providing housing to over 950 people in our community. We own or manage over 700 properties including long term community housing and transitional housing.
We are the main entry point for the homelessness system and provide a range of supports for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Each year we see over 5,000 people in need of assistance to secure or maintain their housing.
We have over 50 skilled staff supporting offices in Wodonga, Wangaratta, Shepparton and Seymour. We also provide outreach to Wallan, Broadford, Kilmore, Alexandra, Yea, Myrtleford, Yarrawonga, Cobram and Benalla.
BeyondHousing is a registered Housing Association in Victoria and we have achieved accreditation for Human Services Standards.
Since forming as Rural Housing Network Limited in 1998, our mission has evolved to provide support, housing and advocacy for people at risk of homelessness and those in private rental experiencing housing stress.
In 2017 we changed our trading name to BeyondHousing to better represent the work we currently do.
BeyondHousing is committed to ensuring that children are safe, respected and that their voice is heard. We will provide services that keep everybody safe from harm and abuse, including children and in particular children from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and culturally diverse backgrounds, as well as children with disabilities.
BeyondHousing will implement practices and procedures that are in the best interests of the child and ensure that alleged child abuse is responded to according to legislative requirements.
