Three Sista’s is a social enterprise that provides support to the displaced and homeless via a private model of social housing accommodation in Cairns, Queensland, Australia. Three Sista’s was formed by two committed social entrepreneurs – Stuart Wright and Janet Guthrie, who identified the need for increased social responsibility in the provision of safe, friendly and culturally sensitive accommodation and associated services. To address this issue and provide a solution, Three Sista’s approached Social Enterprise Finance Australia (SEFA) who provided $450,000 to primarily assist with acquiring management rights over 68 low-rent units and providing associated tenant services in Cairns. Three Sista’s goal is to contribute to the long term well-being of socially disadvantaged and Indigenous people living in the homelessness stream in the Cairns and Cape York regions by improving health and living standards, accommodation and employment opportunities.
