Living with her husband and daughter, securing affordable housing is one of the most important things for Alessandra and her family.
After finding out about City West Housing via a lovely chap waiting at the same bus stop, Alessandra and her family were able to apply and secure a two bedroom apartment, with a balcony in Pyrmont that they could afford and subsequently create a lovely new home.
“With beautiful views everywhere, easy access to the CBD and so many lovely people, it is one of the best areas to live in Sydney for our young family. Actually, it’s one of the best areas to live in Sydney, period.”
For Alessandra, this has helped her family fully integrate into the community and now they call it home.
“Staying in this neighbourhood has re-energised us and given us stability, enabling us to spend more time together as a family as it’s extremely close to my husband’s workplace.
“The opportunity to be so connected to our community, and each other, gives us the energy to participate in local activities, such as those organised by City West including a recent Back to School lunch and events at the local Ultimo Community Centre.”
“I love the community within our complex which is why we now have a home rather than just a place to live. Our building has a terrace on the top floor with tables and chairs and a variety of well-maintained herbs.
Everyone is so helpful, generous, gregarious and humble: it’s like one happy family. It isn’t uncommon for people to offer furniture or receive a knock from our neighbour, letting us know our car lights are still on, or even share our cables to jump start our cars! We are all willing to look out for one another – it’s just wonderful.”
