Community Housing Limited has consolidated its position as Australia’s largest not-for-profit housing provider by integrating with Horizon Housing, and has vowed to help address the nation’s affordable housing crisis.
CHL announced on Monday it was integrating Horizon Housing – Queensland’s largest housing provider – into the CHL Group of Companies with the aim of delivering more affordable housing in the state.
The integration is expected to drive growth for the two organisations so that more struggling Australians can secure long-term affordable housing.
CHL currently has a stock base of about 7,000 units, including an estimated 1,400 in New South Wales, 2,000 in Victoria, 1,400 in Tasmania, 1,000 in South Australia, 850 in Western Australia and 160 in Queensland.
Partnering with Horizon Housing will boost CHL’s portfolio to more than 11,000 properties by November, making it the largest community housing provider in Australia.
The combined group will manage community and affordable housing properties across six states, with nearly 300 staff delivering services to support disadvantaged people.
