About us

Who We Are

HAA is a national for purpose organisation creating business-led actions to deliver housing solutions for Australians in need.

What We Do

We harness skills, goods and services to collaboratively deliver innovative housing options. We advocate for change and communicate the economic impacts of not providing housing for all.

Homelessness is too big for government to solve alone.
Our role is to be the conduit for businesses across Australia to get involved and deliver change

Alison Watkins AM on HAA

Just like the provision of roads, schools and hospitals – safe, affordable and stable housing for all Australians is fundamental economic infrastructure.

Australia’s chronic shortage of affordable social and public housing is set to create an inter-generational time bomb where the future economic costs of managing the unintended consequences of homelessness, such as mental and physical health, family violence, policing, justice and long-term welfare dependency, will explode.

Our Vision

An Australia where everyone has a stable place to call home.

Our Mission

To harness the private sector to address the chronic shortage of low-income, affordable housing.

Our Strategic Priorities

Pop-Up Housing

Short-term, ‘meanwhile use’ housing in underutilised buildings

Transformation

Private sector-led viable, affordable housing options

Advocacy

Communicate the long-term economic impact of not providing housing for all

Our Supporters

Our work is made possible by bringing together values-alligned businesses to address homelessness in a practical and measurable way.

National Partners

Our National Partners make a significant contribution to the operations of Housing All Australians, either via pro bono services or goods, or financial. We are so grateful for their contributions, all of which are critical to our ongoing success.
