Partner With Us

One of the highlights of 2022 was having a visit from Kate Thwaites, the federal member for Jagajaga, who has been a great friend and supporter of Open House.

Kate was taken for a tour of Open House by our CEO Paul Burgess and got to see some of our projects in action, including Open House’s recently revamped Community Garden and the Youth Workshop Mentoring Program’s Workshop.

The workshop recently received the Jagajaga Stronger Communities grant and will upgrade the YWMP workshop with these funds.

Thank you to Kate for her continued support of Open House and we can’t wait to help keep making Jagajaga a place for all.
