07 Mar Mid Coast Expansion
This is an exciting period for Providential Homes! Last year we established our services in Taree and the Great Lakes region.
Mort Laursen heads up the Mid Coast Region, with our first guests being welcomed in to our new accommodation on November 3rd, and we were quickly running at full capacity.
Along with out STA rooms Providential has also opened several Transitional Program rooms which are highly sought after.
This year we have already expanded our program in Mid Coast to include to new Transitional Program rooms as the demand for our services has increased.
We are working collaboratively with the case managers of the local Specialist Homeless Services—namely, the Great Lakes and Manning Youth Service (GLaMYS) and the Samaritans—and are achieving good results with our shared clients. Despite having many clients with complex needs, we have been able to support them to access the right services for those needs. We have built a network of donors including local churches, such as 4Life Church, which has donated bread and seasonal vegetables, and Hope Church which has donated plates, cups and cutlery. As a result, we are better equipped for cooking, and meals can now be stored on-site in a newly acquired freezer.
Our future goals are to grow our services throughout the Mid Coast and offer support to this high-need area. We look forward the impact we can have in this region, and the exciting opportunities that lie ahead also.
