The House of Welcome has been offering Material Aid furniture and household items to asylum seeking clients and their families for several years with great success. However, it has now come to the point that we must completely close this program by June 1st 2018 and concentrate on other Housing related issues effecting the many clients that engage with our service and visit our centre in Granville. So we are unable to accept any more items or requests.
Unfortunately the Material Aid program relies on regular volunteers through drivers as well as removalist offsiders. Very often the service has struggled to have help each week and the logistics volunteer is constantly having to change or cancel set donations and distributions of items.
House of Welcome greatly appreciates the generous assistance it has received over the years from the community and the many volunteers who have given their time and hard work to make it happen. If you are still wanting to donate or request items please contact some of the following services: Vinnies, Salvation Army or contact Generous and Grateful https://www.generousandgrateful.com.au/
