My House Oatlands (MHO) is holding an Open Day BBQ to give families an opportunity to see how their family-governed housing model is run. You will also be able to meet the 3 residents, their families and some of the MHO staff.
MHO was established in 2013 as a supported independent living service to accommodate 3 teenage boys with autism. These 3 families agreed to pool their sons’ individualised funding packages together and are actively involved in governing and managing the operations of the home.
The house has now been running for 4+ years and has created a family-governed home away from home for the 3 housemates.
