One Heart, One Home

We are currently undertaking a $27.3 million redevelopment of our buildings between the corners of Robe and Grey streets, St Kilda, known as Project 101 (otherwise known as 'One Heart, One Home').

The site will be redeveloped to provide appropriate and specialised accommodation as well as support services to the community who have age-related conditions and who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.

A range of works are expected to be completed as part of the five-year project, with the redevelopment of the 14-bed rooming house, the merging of our two existing aged care buildings, increasing the number of beds to 97 and the expansion of our Hands on Health Clinic.

"By providing a greater range of accommodation and care support we can prevent the need for premature entry into residential aged care services and have a positive impact on the number of older Australians living in unsuitable housing or on the street." - Cathy Humphrey, CEO, Sacred Heart Mission.

The project will be developed in stages with an expected completion date for 2021. The four stages of the plan include:

Stage 1: Aged Care expansion and renovation

Stage 2: Rooming House creation and Hands on Health Clinic expansion

Stage 3: Refurbishment of the Women's House

Stage 4: Construction of a centralised administration hub.

The Australian Government is contributing $8.85 million to support the project, with the balance being raised through philanthropy activities and the sale of an asset.

We are currently in the second phase and preparatory works have commenced to make sure we can continue to provide important services to our residents during construction.
