On a wintry late August afternoon the rain generously provided a welcome window in which to launch the UnitingCare Wesley Bowden Southern Homelessness Service. Invited guests gathered at the Brighton Road Service Hub and were welcomed to country by Jamie Goldsmith on didgeridoo. UCW Bowden Chief Executive Julian Sawicki provided the background to the Service and introduced the newest members of staff; the team who will be providing outreach and in home services to those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness within the Local Government Areas of Holdfast Bay, Marion and Mitcham. Chloe Fox, MP, followed the CE, welcoming guests and staff to the launch, ably assisted by Federal Labor MP, Steve Georganas. Following the successful housewarming we look forward to assisting our current and future clients avoid homelessness and find a long term place to call home.
