Affordable Development Award Homes of Hope, St Kilda | HousingFirst

13 Dec 2022

Homes of Hope in St Kilda has converted a dilapidated rooming house into three up to date social housing developments. Iconically, it provides a world-first facility with 36 specifically designed transitional care studios for homeless mothers and their newborns, in conjunction with the Royal Women’s Hospital. Additionally, it has redeveloped a historic mansion that was used as a rooming house into a beautiful facility with up-to-date features for 25 women with disabilities. A complex project in a very sensitive area, Homes for Hope is recognised by the judges as providing a highly specific response to a group of homeless new mothers and infants, possibly the group most in need of care in our society.
