Living Life Alongside In Deep Community with Jayden Battey
A Safe Place To Call Home And A Community To Love
About this episode
Everybody yearns for meaningful relationships and a sense of belonging. Unfortunately, not everyone gets to experience being loved and know for who they truly are. Servants Community Housing house manager, Jayden Battey, is a remarkable young man who walks alongside many people from all walks of life each day. In this episode of Tomorrow Pod, Jayden shares how everyone is unique and how different narratives influence how you perceive the world.
Jayden Battey is passionate about helping people create meaningful connections to the world around them. He lives with 28 marginalised men as part of Servants Community Housing, a Melbourne non-profit supporting people at risk of homelessness with safe housing and a loving community to call their own. When he’s not with Servants, he’s teaching music, studying public policy, slowly improving at netball, and enjoying Saturday brunch with his wife, Mikyla.

I guess it comes back to the heart that every person, every person deserves a safe place to call home and a community who loves them.
In a world that’s so distracted and fragmented, that sense of shared identity is something that we easily lose, but I think can be found again, no matter where you are or who you live.
