OUR ORGANISATION > How We Began
How We Began
The Goldfields Indigenous Housing Organisation (GIHO) was established to provide a dedicated housing service for Aboriginals in the Goldfields Region. Seventeen housing organisations in the region were brought under one umbrella to save extensive administration expenses.
The approval to fund GIHO was given by the ATSIC Mulga Mallee Regional Council and seed housing stock came from Bega Garnbirringu Health Service Aboriginal Corporation (BEGA) and Eastern Goldfields Aboriginal Corporation Resource Agency (EGACRA).
The Constitution was developed with membership based upon each Indigenous Organisation providing housing stock to GIHO. Current membership is through nominating three natural persons to represent that membership. From this pool of people, the committee and executive is voted for at the AGM of GIHO.
