Our members are diverse and include industry, emergency and supported housing; community housing providers; co-operatives; housing, homelessness and tenancy support services; local governments; urban planners and architects; research institutions; academics; and individuals with a passion for social and affordable housing and ending homelessness.

I invite you to join the Shelter WA community.
