Currently, the program occupies four properties in the Logan area. Due to the success of the housing program, Canefields Clubhouse is expecting to add three more small residences into the program. Comprising of two one bedroom and one two bedroom units, these properties are expected to be available by March 2019. Watch this space for updates.
