A Roof In Return uses donations to fund the delivery of safe and secure housing options to veterans through Tenancy Facilitation, Bond Loan, Tenancy Guarantee, Rental Assistance, Interim Accommodation and Overnight Accommodation services.

We aim to keep our administration costs as low as practicable so the money we receive can be used to give veterans a roof in return.

To date the set-up costs, bank charges, printing, contracted services (such as auditors, accounting and government fees), have come from the Directors’ personal contributions and specific gifts from our supporters.  We aim to source as many of our professional services from in-kind contributions provided through valued partnerships, however some areas of compliance do cost money, which is the same for any not-for-profit organisation.

There are currently no salaried positions at A Roof In Return and we receive no government funding.

We are a start-up not-for-profit organisation with a mission to provide housing support services to as many veterans as possible, in the most effective and efficient way. The way we can successively do this is by ensuring that we are performing as a best practice organisation and directing the maximum amount of funds to giving a roof in return.
