Jacaranda Housing holds title to a portfolio of approximately 80 dwellings in 59 separate locations in south-east Queensland under the Long Term Community Housing Program. These include 16 properties in the Bayside area of Brisbane and Redland Cities, and the remainder in inner suburban Brisbane. These properties have an estimated value in excess of $38m.
Jacaranda Housing is governed by a skill-based Board of Directors and employs an experienced team to manage the day to day operations of the organisation. Jacaranda Housing currently manages all of its properties in-house, with management carried out by an experienced and professional Housing Manager and overseen by the General Manager (Executive Officer) .This operational model has been in place since 2010. Jacaranda Housing mostly provides housing to people facing housing stress and those most at risk in our community under the Department of Housing and Public Works ‘ One Social Housing System’.
For some people, tenant participation is still important, and volunteerism has been a way of life. Sub-committees provide avenues for tenants/members to continue to participate if desired, ensuring they can remain engaged and the organisation continues to have access to their skills and knowledge gained over the past 30 years of volunteer service. Our current sub-committee structure is:
- JTAG (Jacaranda Tenant Advisory Group) – avenue for tenants to provide feedback to the Board of Directors around the provision of Housing and Tenant Services.
The following committees are made up of the Jacaranda Housing Board of Directors to ensure strong governance and continued growth within the organisation:
- Audit Committee
- Risk and Investment Committee
- Governance and Nomination Committee
- Remuneration Committee
- Constitutional Change Committee
