What We Do

PowerHousing supports the growth of Community Housing Providers (CHPs) in Australia. Our role is to facilitate and support peer-to-peer exchange and collaboration through structured networks of CHPs, businesses, policy makers, international partnerships and a wide range of other stakeholders. Our structured program of exchange provides a forum in which the CHP Membership builds the depth and strength of the sector, and a foundation for strong and effective advocacy.
