Affordable Community Living
Welcome to Opening Doors Foundation Ltd (ODF). Our aim is to provide affordable seniors and disability accommodation in a community setting. We achieve this by providing the accommodation on a rental only basis.
Our projects allow retired seniors and persons with a disability to live in a community village that is secure, well maintained and safe. This provides an alternative social environment for those who may be living in the community where they feel isolated and insecure.
Our disability accommodation consists of specialised housing solutions that allows a person with a disability to live independently or reside in specialised housing with support services from an external provider of their choice.
About Opening Doors Foundation
Opening Doors Foundation Ltd (ODF) is a not-for-profit, charitable public benevolent institution located in Wagga Wagga NSW. Formerly known as The Haven, the organisation was founded in 1951. Through community fundraising efforts the organisations first commenced providing social housing for the aged.
Over time the services provided by the organisation grew to include residential aged care facilities and community aged care. In, December 2018, after a strategic review, the organisation divested of the residential aged care services to concentrate on affordable seniors housing and housing for persons with a disability. The name was changed to Opening Doors Foundation Ltd.
