Wunan_Transitional_Housing_Halls_Creek_West_Kimberley15 new Transitional Homes are being built in Halls Creek! Work is well under way with the first eight houses almost finished and the other seven anticipated to be built in February 2015.  We have currently had two community meetings which have gone well and the induction process for future tenants has begun; a process that has been very rewarding  for all involved.  The WA Department of Housing and Community Housing Limited have worked in partnership with us through this process as the same model that has been so successful in Kununurra is replicated.  The Halls Creek community are very excited by the project and the opportunity for some to significantly improve their housing arrangements while working toward their long term objectives of home ownership. Wunan will soon start recruiting support staff.

An additional 60 Transitional Homes are also in development in the West Kimberley; 20 in Derby and 40 in Broome. This says much about the success of the model to date and the support for its continued expansion.

We would like to also say farewell to Cherie McAdam, our Money Mentor, who is leaving the team to further her Consultancy Work. We wish Cherie the best for the future and thank her for her contribution to the Transitional Housing program this last 2 years.  Cherie has received national recognition, not only for her work as a financial counsellor around the Transitional Housing program but also as a published author.
