Castlemaine Homelessness Service Eyes Tiny Homes

Amid concerns about housing affordability Castlemaine Housing Service is planning tiny homes for those at risk of homelessness.

While some of the biggest drivers of homelessness include drug and alcohol use or domestic violence, unaffordable housing is a factor.

We at Castlemaine Housing Service are in the pre- planning phase of creating a tiny homes village of 4-6 tiny homes, and we are basing our tiny homes on the replicator model of Tiny Homes Foundation.

We already have the support of the Mount Alexander Shire Mayor and Council, as well as many expressions of interest to volunteer from the local community.

We are now applying for grants to help fund the project, and also in conversation with local churches regarding using church land for the tiny homes.

If you would like to help us make this a reality, can contribute land and/or funding, please contact Michael McMahon on or Jan Stewart on

We look forward to collaborating with you to work towards ending homelessness in Australia. 🏠
