The purpose of MAH is to provide relief to persons who are homeless or whose life circumstances render them vulnerable to loss of affordable and secure housing. Through partnering with Registered Housing Associations, MAH will seek to attract funding for investment in affordable housing developments through initiatives such as the Victorian State Government’s recently announced Big Housing Build Program. MAH currently has a partnership with Haven; Home Safe for the delivery of affordable housing in the City of Moreland.
