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 we offer
How ICLA’s Pathways team can assist you.

Transitional Accommodation for 6-18 months in one of our newly refurbished properties in Bondi Beach, Bondi Junction or Woolloomooloo. We have a range of accommodation types from individual studios to twin share with another program participant. We operate on a fee-based model that includes two components:

Rent - In accordance with Social Housing guidelines, rent is calculated as 25% of the Resident’s fortnightly income + applicable rent assistance + any applicable energy supplement.

Utilities, furnishing and program fee – A fortnightly payment of $50 to cover the contribution to the cost of furnished home, including access to WIFI, minor repairs and maintenance, power, pest control, and common-area cleaning.

Program support and activities

Informal assistance from our Pathways Manager to discuss your long-term housing goals, develop individual pathways to independence and make referrals or applications to other programs as required.

Provision of a fully furnished home which is move-in ready, including linen, cookware, appliances etc.
