Our Point of Difference Initiative Connects Vinnies Members with Amelie Housing Tenants
to Help Make a Difference to their Lives.
There is currently an exciting new initiative underway that allows Vinnies members to make a difference in the lives of people from our Amelie Housing community.
It’s called the Point of Difference, and it connects Conference members from areas close to our Housing sites with tenants from those sites so the members can help tenants build better communities and enhance the quality of their time with us.
Amelie is a Tier 1 Registered Community Housing Provider operating in NSW, ACT and South Australia, and hopes to be truly national in the future. It was created by the Society to provide a realistic response to housing stress and the poverty that results from it. Amelie Housing currently manages over 1,300 properties.
Tenants can always contact their local Conference whenever they need to, but the Point of Difference goes beyond the work members would normally do.
Vinnies believes in building safe engaged communities within our sites to overcome the ever-growing problem of social isolation.
But we can’t do it without your help.
If you have a skill like language teaching, gardening, cooking or art, or if you love to pitch in and organise barbecues and social events, and you live in area where there is an Amelie Housing site, we’d love to hear from you.
