Moe Neighbourhood House aims to provide support, respect and a place of belonging through community participation.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Helping the community to build confidence and extend themselves, bringing people together for mutual benefit through the use of skills building and community support.
Moe Neighbourhood House (MNH) was established in 1983 and became an incorporated association in January 1986. MNH is managed by a volunteer Committee of Management, comprising volunteers and house participants, who have the best interests of the Neighbourhood House and the local community at heart. MNH was originally located over two locations Kingsford St and Service Rd South in Moe.
In 2006 Department of Families Fairness and Housing purchased two portable buildings from the 2006 Commonwealth Games Athletes Village (used by the athletes from Uganda) in Melbourne and had them transported to vacant land that they own in James Street Moe. The Department purposely built a new home for Moe Neighbourhood House which opened in January 2007.
For many years Moe Neighbourhood House ran a childcare service, however due to changing community needs, at the end of August 2021 our childcare service ceased operation.
Moe Neighbourhood House works within a community development framework and within a membership-based governance model. This builds social connections and networks based on trust, respect, and reciprocal interaction - known as social capital.
Moe Neighbourhood House Inc. is a non-profit community organisation providing a range of services, including learning activities and programs in a friendly, relaxed environment.
Moe Neighbourhood House is a registered charity and is funded by:
- Department of Family Fairness and Housing
