Corona Virus Response Updates

HAAG is taking steps to protect the safety of our clients, members and staff during this pandemic. We are advocating to stop all evictions and accomodate vulnerable older people as part of the public health response.

We are working off-site and are limiting face to face contact

Tourist accommodation should be opened up for the “hidden homeless” who are affected by the COVID19 corona virus pandemic.

Our autumn newsletter farewells longtime employee and advocate for housing justice, Jeff Fiedler. It also covers HAAGs response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and much more!

“No Victorian should lose their home during this pandemic, or because of it,” said HAAG's Chair, Phyll Williams.  “Older people are the fastest-growing segment of the private rental market, and the most vulnerable to the coronavirus.  The government must ensure that renters aren’t put on the street, where they will be completely unable to take any social-distancing or self-isolation measures.”

HAAG is taking steps to limit the potential spread of the corona virus. This means that we will be having less face-to-face meetings with our members, volunteers and clients, and there will be less people in the office. We will still be answering the phone and encourage people to stay in touch!
