Closing its doors as a hostel in early 2015, the Lois O’Donoghue site on Stirling Road has now reopened as a community service hub. Bungala purchased the site in mid 2015 and was looking for a like-minded organisation to lease the facilities and offer relevant services to the local community. KWY Aboriginal Corporation has taken over the premises and has started offering two essential social programs to begin with, focusing on safe family environments and behavioural change for men turning to domestic violence.
Additional programs and training and educational opportunities are also planned to extend the services program offered at the Lois O’Donoghue.
