We were honoured to be joined by the Acting Mayor for the City of Greater Geelong, the Hon. Peter Murrihy, to officially open a specialised adult disability swing at our Marshalltown Road property today - a joint project between Housing Choices, Gateways Support Services and the Council. Our dedicated staff came together with residents and the local community to cut the ribbon and celebrate an achievement over three years in the making. This project affords our residents living with autism the freedom to access recreational opportunities in the safe and supported environment of their own home. They otherwise have limited access to similar opportunities in the community.
Mr Murrihy said, “We’re so pleased that the City of Greater Geelong was able to jointly contribute to such a fantastic cause and hope this brings much needed comfort and enjoyment to these residents.”
The $3,000 Council grant married financial contributions by Housing Choices Australia and Gateways. A very sincere thank you to all involved in the success of this project, and to the staff who assisted today in preparing the property and gardens - making our Geelong residents feel even more at home. #HomeToMe ...

In Victoria during 2016 we commenced our ‘Love Your Laneway’ project in partnership wth the City of Melbourne, Wintringham, local artists, businesses and of course, our residents. Two breathtaking murals were painted along the walls of 120 King Street and 525 Bourke Street in Gallagher’s Place - Melbourne.
The project for which we won the Excellence in Tenant Engagement and Social Inclusion Award by Powerhousing Australia last year, was recently showcased at the Australasian Housing Institute’s Victorian Professional Excellence in Housing Forum.
Our Community Development superstar Jane presented brilliantly in the category of ‘Leading Community Engagement Practice Award Winner”
Congratulations Jane on a great presentation and to everyone who made the project possible.
A bonus treat to see Naomi and her newly arrived bub make an appearance and reminisce on her significant contribution. The project could not have been a success without you. ... See MoreSee Less
