Whitsunday Housing Company Ltd (WHCL) is a not-for-profit (PBI) company managing emergency, transitional and long term social housing throughout the Whitsunday Region.
COO Joanne Moynihan (Whitsunday Housing) said “There is a definite need for housing for Homeless women over 55 who are a hidden statistic in our Whitsunday community – they tend to fly under the radar, they are embarrassed about their situation and tend to stay with friends or family, live in their cars or in overcrowded dwellings.
45% of older women are spending more than 30% of their income on rent. 27% of our tenants are single women over 50.
There are more than 39,000 Queensland women over the age of 55 who are doing it tough – suffering financial hardship driven by rising living costs, lack of employment, or no superannuation and a lack of affordable housing options.”
