Bakhita Centre

Located at Coconut Grove, we offer housing for single men across four buildings in a large, lush garden environment. The Bakhita Centre accommodates 35 tenants.

The housing comprises a single freshly painted, furnished room with linen and a small fridge.

Each building has a fully equipped communal kitchen and dining area, bathroom, showers and toilets, with some buildings providing covered outdoor seating areas.


Living at the Bakhita Centre

In addition to providing a safe place to sleep, the Bakhita Centre offers residents a sense of community.

There is a covered common area for use by all tenants with tables, lounges, a large barbeque, pool table, TV and other games. There is also a small carpark nearby.

To develop the skills and experience of sharing a home and being a good neighbour, Bakhita Centre residents participate in a weekly roster for the cleaning of the communal areas.

All our tenants are required to abide by the house rules set out in a signed agreement with us, this acts as your tenancy agreement.

Please remember the basics for living in our housing - pay your rent on time, respect the quiet enjoyment of those living around you and do not cause damage to the property.


More than just a roof

While you reside at the Bakhita Centre you are provided with case management support.

We can assist you with training for job readiness and generally developing confidence in those day to day skills that help you to look after your property and yourself. Household skills such as budgeting, cooking, cleaning, dealing with neighbours, appropriate social behaviour and understanding tenancy agreements.

We can facilitate referrals to specialist support agencies who can assist you with health, mental health, legal or financial issues, to name a few.

The Bakhita Centre offers Supported Accommodation, which is short to medium term housing only, so while you are living here you are encouraged to continue to develop skills and opportunities to improve your prospects to secure other medium to longer term housing.
