Yumba-Meta Housing Association Ltd (YMHAL) is a not for profit organisation that was established in 1973.

It provides long-term, medium term and short term secure, affordable and culturally appropriate accommodation and housing related support services to disadvantaged people of the Townsville region.

Environ Project & Asset Management are committed to assisting YMHAL in their mission to be the leader in the provision of quality housing for disadvantaged groups in particular Aboriginal and Islander people.

Environ Project & Asset Management are proud to have been the Architects and Project Managers of the “Ernest & Maud Hoolihan Village” at Nightjar Street Deeragun which Yumba Meta was presented with the “Australasian Leading Innovation Award for Professional Excellence in Housing” in October 2015.

Yumba-Meta Housing Association Ltd recently celebrated its 40 years of service, supporting our Townsville community.


Yumba Meta Housing Association Limited at our recent 40 year anniversary celebrations saw Ernest (Ernie) Hoolihan take the stand to formally address the audience, during his speech Ernie said;

"I would like to take this opportunity to recognise Robert Burton, Architect. All too often we overlook those that have given so much over the last 15 years, I can say without Bob and his team by our side YMHAL would not have moved forward with the certainty and positive direction we have today. Bob, I thank you for your loyalty, dedication and commitment you have shown to YMHAL and I hope this continues into the future and for future projects."

For myself as Chief Executive Officer of YMHA Ltd. it has been with Robert Burton's dedication and continued service to this association that we have been able to provide increasingly improving housing for our community.
