Pacific Link Housing works to provide and further develop appropriate housing solutions for those in the community who are in the greatest need. The company operates within a culture of social justice, fairness and transparency and remains accountable to all stakeholders.


Pacific Link Housing is a product of the merger of two small organisations (Mid Hunter Housing in Maitland and Gosford Woy Woy Rental Housing Association) and the work of former CEO Sheila Astolfi, who sadly passed in 2010. She worked tirelessly for over 20 years to make the Central Coast Community a better place, and to improve the lives of those marginalised by economic inequality and housing stress.

Pacific Link Housing was founding member of the NSW Federation of Housing Associations, and was registered as a public benevolent institution in July 1996.  The appointment of a skill-based board and experienced management team has been of benefit in recent years, with Pacific Link Housing now recognised through awards for innovation, housing projects, tenant programs and individual management excellence.
