How to determine if JHC accommodation is suitable for you

Searching for accommodation can be challenging in South Africa because housing is expensive, including renting a flat. Meanwhile, the majority of South Africans are mid-to-low income earners who live paycheck to paycheck. 

But finding affordable flats is not completely impossible. The key is putting in a little more work to find a place that is affordable, all the while meeting your other needs. 

With that being said, the Johannesburg Housing Company (JHC) is a social housing company that assists people in the above-mentioned earning segments with finding safe homes they can afford. But how would you know if JHC is the right kind of accommodation for you? Keep reading below to find out more about what JHC has to offer tenants.

A diversified environment

A property that puts you first

At JHC, we care about our tenants, and because of this, we always put them first. To ensure that they live happily, healthily and harmoniously, the team at Makhulong A Matala (a seSotho term for greener pastures) encourage community culture.

A fun living environment through activities

The Makhulong A Matala team are passionate about making tenants happy. As a result, they run several activities that add value to the lives of our tenants and their children. The activities include tenant induction, which gives new tenants a full understanding of their roles and responsibilities at the JHC property. The activities also include anti-litter and recycling campaigns, where you’ll be taught how to maintain a clean living environment. 

Plus, the wellness programmes aim to encourage tenants to learn about the status of their health and ways to take control of it, such as screening tests and fitness pop-ups to get them moving around. There are also safe and fun activities for children, such as sports activities and playroom facilities, where they can play safely. Makhulong A Matala also encourages adult vitality and food garden programmes – a voluntary opportunity for tenants to grow their own produce and share it with each other.
