Community Houses Association of the Outer Eastern Suburbs

In the business of strengthening communities and learning, we work together to ensure our committees, staff and volunteers are also resourced to learn and thrive.


CHAOS supports the work of Neighbourhood Houses and Learning Centres with their communities. We do this through linking, resourcing and advocating on behalf of our members. We are a network of 30 Neighbourhood Houses and Centres based in the Outer Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne.
