Haven South Yarra Celebrates 5th Anniversary

Approximately 60 people attended the 5th anniversary of the official opening of Haven South Yarra recently. This significant milestone was celebrated by Haven South Yarra residents, their families, Haven Foundation Board members and staff, the Havenhub Committee members, and Prahran Mission staff.

Professor Allan Fels AO, Chairman of The Haven Foundation, stated in his speech that Haven South Yarra had been highly successful over the five years, with families, the Foundation, and Prahran Mission working together to ensure that the 14 residents were provided with high quality, safe, secure, supported accommodation.

Only one vacancy has occurred during that period, and that was due to a resident recovering to the extent that he is now living in the general community.

Due to the success of Haven South Yarra, The Foundation will be replicating that model of care elsewhere in the near future.
