Summit Community Services Inc primarily aims to alleviate the hardship of housing stress for low-to moderate income earning households by providing secure and affordable housing and delivering housing products for disadvantaged people who have difficulties sourcing adequate and affordable housing.
Summit Community Services Inc currently manages 65 properties in the Narrabri Shire which are either owned by the Land and Housing Corporation or leased to Summit Community Services Inc or head leased from private landlords. Summit Community Services Inc specialises in supported accommodation for people with complex housing needs, including people with disabilities, long term homelessness, women and children escaping domestic violence and young people.
Summit Community Services Inc houses many people with complex needs. Summit Community Services Inc has developed a number of formal partnerships with other service providers.
