The Orange Door - Hastings Access Point
Women, children, and young people experiencing family violence, and families requiring support across the southern Bayside Peninsula Area will now have greater access to much-needed services, following the launch of The Orange Door – Hastings Access Point.
The upgraded facility was officially opened today by Family Safety Victoria and the Minister for Prevention of Family Violence, Ros Spence.
Good Shepherd CEO Stella Avramopoulos said she was thrilled that the organisation’s significant financial contribution to the facility’s refurbishment would give the local community access to the face-to-face services they need.
“We are delighted to have played a significant role in the development of The Orange Door – Hastings Access Point,” Ms. Avramopoulos said.
“Good Shepherd along with nine local partner agencies are now better resourced to deliver a coordinated service to meet the emerging needs of our clients.”
