The aim of Stable Court is to provide long-term supported accommodation to low-income families with ongoing family support provided by church members who desire to enrich the lives of others.
Stable Court is a joint venture between South Australian Community Housing Association (SACHA), Lutheran Community Housing Support Unit and The Stables Christian Centre Inc, commonly known as ‘The Stables’. The houses are managed by the Lutheran Community Housing Support Unit who are responsible for final approval and allocation of residents, rent, repairs and evictions. The Stables Christian Centre Inc is the landowner and provider of ongoing family support.
