About our Houses

Servants Community Housing manages three rooming houses in Kew and Hawthorn.  Our rooming houses offer single room accommodation only, with furniture and linen provided.

You are expected to be independent and care for yourself and the facilities. Live-in House Managers provide oversight but are not trained medical staff and do not dispense medication.

Each house includes breakfast 7 days a week and an evening meal 6 nights a week.  Communal kitchens are available for you to cook your own lunches.   Each house has a communal lounge with TV and Foxtel.  Free internet is available.

  • Our property in Hawthorn houses 29 people and has shared bathroom facilities. This property also has 8 self-contained units however vacancies in these units are very rare.
  • One of our properties in Kew houses 24 people with 12 bathrooms.  This is an alcohol-free house.
  • Our other property in Kew houses 28 people and has individual en-suites (private bathrooms).
