For 35 years St Kilda Community Housing (SCH) has provided affordable accommodation options for single people in the St Kilda area. Beginning life as the St Kilda Rooming House Issues Group in 1984 we have had a singular purpose ‘to improve the quality of housing for single people’.

Our work is based upon the belief that social inclusion and engagement is the right of all members of our community, rooming house or otherwise. This emphasis upon inclusion and community is at the forefront of our work and influences the partnerships that we enter into as well as the programs that we deliver.

In addition to providing affordable housing, programs that we are involved in delivering include:

  • social meals programs;
  • creative expression opportunities – photography, creative writing;
  • dental health care services; and
  • a variety of social activities.
