Helena registered for Community Housing in August 2016. At the time of registration Helena was living at home with her parents in Paralowie. Helena was 33 years of age and felt that it was time to move from her parent’s house to be more independent. Helena believed that she would be able to manage living independently with help from her mother. Helena had been preparing for independent living and had started to collect things that she would need to live alone.
Helena moved into an IDAA property in December 2017. The property is around the corner from her parents.
When asked about how she is finding living in her own house…
“I like living in my house because I can do my own thing.”
– Helena, IDAA Tenant
