Chris Glennen from Active Community Housing

Chris Glennen (Active) and Liz (Active tenant)

Recently, Chris Glennen and Sylvia Cassar travelled to St Arnaud for a lovely morning tea to celebrate the opening of seven units of accommodation in St Arnaud.

This was lovely occasion with great celebration and support from the local community. In attendance on the day were all the tenants, staff from our partner McCallum Disability Services, two local Councillors, families, the Ladies Auxiliary and friends. Thank you to all the tenants who opened their homes for a tour of the site by the guests.

This was an important event for Active to celebrate permanent housing for seven people from the St Arnaud district who otherwise would have found getting accommodation a very difficult matter.

Thanks to Sylvia, Carmela and Ronan and everyone who helped make this happen. We thank Shane Molloy CEO and everyone at McCallum, who were great partners in this project and contributed $35,000 to the upgrade works to bring these properties up to standard. Active obtained these 7 units or long term lease from the Office Of Housing.

A special thanks to the Ladies Auxiliary for putting on morning tea for the thirty residents and guests.
