About Us

Affordable Homes

Every person deserves a place to call home.

Affordable Retirement Living

Private rental can seem impossible if you’re on a low income, especially if you’re also dealing with unemployment, financial stress or mental health issues.

Anglicare Rental Affordability Snapshot figures reveal just 0.8 per cent of available housing stock in Australia is affordable and appropriate for a single person on an Age Pension.

Offering affordable housing aligns with VMCH’s steadfast commitment to the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, particularly the belief that every human being should live a dignified life.

Secure rental accommodation

We believe our nation’s older generation deserve access to safe and secure housing; a place where you can live your life to its fullest.

As part of our commitment to comfortable and secure housing, we have 426 independent living units across 24 locations, with more in the pipeline.

Our locations vary across the inner suburbs of Melbourne and are all conveniently located near shops, public transport and the local Catholic church.

It’s not just about having a roof over your head; we are here to ensure you feel comfortable, safe and connected to your community with access to Pastoral Care, home maintenance, gardening and personal support such as Home Care Packages.

What our residents have to say

“I wouldn’t have been able to afford living in a private house on a pension. Rents are exorbitant if you’re a widow like me. I’d probably be living in public housing, which is very hard to get. VMCH is excellent. Here, I’m independent and I’m comfortable.”

“I am 110 per cent happy here. It’s so lovely. Everyone feels safe and we all know and look out for each other.”
