Habitat for Humanity Invercargill opened an office at 243 Elles Road in South City. Information about Habitat for Humanity programs will be available and it will be the site of “The Housing Hub”. The establishment of a “One Stop Shop” was one of the 29 recommendations in the Invercargill City Councils “Southland Community Housing Strategy” released in August 2017.
“We at Habitat for Humanity have created this “Housing Hub” to meet the recognised need in our community. To have a single place to come to find out what is available with regard to information and agencies: where agencies can attend once or twice a week to deal with enquiries about housing. A neutral place” said Paul Searancke, general manager, Habitat for Humanity Invercargill.
