Over the duration of this journey, we have worked closely with Property Industry Foundation (PIF) and Rawson Homes to create a transitional home for our young people leaving care, a first for an Indigenous Charity, a title we are proud to hold.
As Rawson Homes were the builders across the project they and 13 of their staff came long for the day, including Matt Ramaley, Rawson’s CEO; Nick Chandler, their General Manager; Robert Gullo, the architect; and Andrew Mantouseh, the hard-working Site Manager.
The volunteer team were joined by two KARI Staff members and KARI Chair, Gary Potts who worked together to move soil, lay pebbles, potted plants and other materials and polished it off by laying down the turf.
A BBQ held onsite for all volunteers ended the day on high spirits as we thank them for their hard work and generous effort.
Post the completion of this final stage, we have now received the keys to the property and look forward to making some final changes ahead of an official opening and welcoming our first residents later in the year.
