Our History

Our story began in 1985, with a man named Frank Baker, who saw a need to provide housing and short-term accommodation for people with low incomes who were waiting for Government Housing properties. With fewer than 25 properties in the St George area, two staff and a local management committee, St George Community Housing began operating from the back verandah of the home of one of our founding members.

In 2014, we became known as SGCH to reflect our growing expansion beyond the St George area.
