Housing for older women at risk
Community housing provider Pacific Link Housing plans to provide 12 units in Woy Woy for older women at risk before Christmas.
The project was made possible with a $1.6 million grant from Community Housing Innovation Fund.
Older women at risk of homelessness will be supported into safe and secure homes, according to Member for Terrigal Mr Adam Crouch.
"The development in Woy Woy is close to shops, transport and services and will provide a wealth of opportunities for new tenants to enjoy .
Mr Crouch said the project delivered a positive social and economic outcome.
"This project is part of the pipeline of new homes being built across the Central Coast which will provide secure housing for those most in need," Mr Crouch said.
"It has also supported jobs for local tradies and construction workers, providing critical economic stimulus during the pandemic."
Pacific Link Housing chief executive Mr Ian Lynch said the complex was the first project containing social housing that specifically aimed at supporting older women on the Central Coast.
"The NSW Government's investment allows us to provide brand new safe and affordable homes alongside our market rate tenancies," Mr Lynch said.
"The affordable and market rate tenancies in the complex, while also targeting older females, will be managed by social enterprise Key2 Realty, providing the highest level of support and expertise for residents."
