Housing Families




The Housing Families Project was initiated by Orana House in response to our research into the harmful impacts of Perth’s rental crisis. Bearing a significant brunt are women, often with young children, who’ve come to us because they’re escaping from violence in the one place where they should have felt safest – their homes.

Extensive surveys showed that our clients face constant discrimination in the rental market. They’re at risk of becoming homeless through no fault of their own.

That’s why we’re calling on socially-conscious landlords and property managers to join our rental register.


Why you should register your rental:

More than 88% of landlords surveyed admitted that they didn’t want FDV victim-survivors as tenants due to unfounded fears of property damage by the perpetrator. Further research proved that this was highly unlikely.

The reality is that our clients make excellent tenants. We know this because they live in our crisis and transitional accommodation for extended periods. They’re responsible, clean and house-proud. Above all, they deserve a home where they can live free from violence.

Still sceptical? Don’t be – this project is backed by PM Collective, offering grants of up to $1000 to cover rental arrears and damage in the first six months.

We know this program works: Housing Families secured rentals for eight women in the first two months after launch. We recently celebrated a milestone with our twelfth family. They’re all thriving now and their Landlords are thrilled.

But we still have more deserving families waiting to find a home. Property Managers, Owners and Real Estate Agents, can you help?
