Nina's Story

Nina was born in Serbia and emigrated to Australia for a better life with greater opportunities. Unfortunately Nina became involved in relationship that was destroyed by domestic violence, she had to leave her home and spent quite a while moving around from place to place, unable to access affordable long term accommodation.

Nina has loved living at Brisbane Common Ground, she has created a beautiful home for herself. Last year Nina’s hours of work were reduced and she was concerned about being able to afford her rent. Common Ground Qld were able to reduce Nina’s rent in line with her reduced income, this saved her from becoming homeless again. Nina has now found new employment and loves her new home. Nina featured in a documentary film created to show the benefits of Common Ground supportive and affordable housing.
