What we do

Pathways

Our Pathways housing program aims to support people experiencing mental health issues and homelessness to stabilise recovery, increase community engagement and support individual goals toward independence. 

What is the ICLA Pathways Housing Program?

The ICLA Pathways Program is an everyday life changing initiative. If you are experiencing mental health issues and homelessness, this program is tailored to support you to stabilise your recovery, increase your community engagement, and support your individual goals towards independence. It can provide you with the opportunity to develop strong friendships with your fellow housemates and bond over shared interests.

What support does the Pathways Housing Program offer?

The Pathways Program provides transitional housing for up to 18 months in one of our properties located in Bondi Beach, Bondi Junction or Woolloomooloo. Our range of transitional housing is suitable if you are looking for studio apartments to twin share with another program participant. If you are eligible to the program, you will receive a fully furnished and ready to move-in home. As part of the program, you can also benefit from our informal assistance through our Pathways Manager. This assistance comes in the form of discussing your long-term housing goals, pathways to independence, referrals and applications to other programs.

Our program runs on a fee-based model that includes the following two components:

1. Rent: In accordance with Social Housing guidelines, transition housing rent is calculated as 25% of the resident’s fortnightly income + applicable rent assistance.

2. Utilities, furnishing and program fee: A fortnightly fee of $50 + any applicable energy supplement to cover ongoing costs, including access to WIFI, minor repairs and maintenance, power, pest control and common-area cleaning.

What makes our Pathways Program different?

Life can pull you in many directions, and at times a helpful hand is all that’s needed to get back on track. Our Pathways Program exists to help you get back on your feet and working towards an independent, confident, and fulfilling lifestyle.

All our teams are:

  • Highly empathetic and compassionate
  • Dedicated, and person-centred
  • Concerned with improving the quality of their clients’ lives
  • Detail-oriented, with track record of delivering high quality specialised services
  • Advocates for patient choice, independence, recovery, and well-being
  • Equipped with a deep understanding of the mental health and NDIS systems
