HYPA Housing receives air-conditioning thanks to generous donors
21 Sep 2018
Thanks to the generous support of Jaymel Airconditioning and EY, six HYPA Housing apartments have had reverse cycle air-conditioning installed. Our young tenants couldn’t be happier with the results!
The energy efficient machines were specifically chosen for their low running costs and energy efficiency. This means they are more environmentally friendly and will reduce tenants’ electricity bills.
Young tenants are now looking forward to summer with air-conditioning and are very grateful to receive the units.
“Thank you for your kindness and thoughtfulness,” said a HYPA Housing tenant.
“Thanks to your generosity we no longer need to worry about how to stay warm in winter and cool during summer. It is greatly appreciated,” they said.
The HYPA Housing model works to transition young people out of experiences of homelessness into independent living. Tenants pay minimal rent and receive case management to support any barriers they face and to help develop their independent living skills.
The donation of air conditioners means young tenant’s homes are more comfortable and enjoyable. They can now study, relax and concentrate on moving forward in their lives.
HYPA Housing Manager, Michael Steven, says the air-conditioning is a major addition to the complex and will make a positive impact in the quality of life for the young tenants.
“Installing air-conditioning in these apartments has been on our wish list for a long time,” Michael said.
“Having a comfortable and enjoyable living space for the young tenants makes a house a home and somewhere they want to be. We want our tenants to feel valued and safe so they can concentrate on education, employment and moving forward in their lives. We are very grateful for this donation,” he said.
