2010 has been a huge year for Western Sydney based not-for-profit Parramatta Mission. With strong support from local businesses, governments, clubs, schools and individuals, Parramatta Mission is delighted with its achievements throughout the year.
The opening of Wesley Apartments on 9th March 2010 by Her Excellency Marie Bashir AC CVO, Governor of NSW was a monumental success, with the apartments providing much needed accommodation for families with sick children at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. Families have been coming from all over Australia, including many from Western Australia, country New South Wales and Queensland.
This year saw Parramatta Mission achieve community housing registration, meaning it could provide community housing to people in need. Over 250 individuals and families, many at risk of homelessness, were housed by Parramatta Mission this year.
