Hume Community Service Hub Expands
Tuesday, 3rd June 2014 at 10:38 am
The thriving Hume Community Service Hub in Melbourne’s north has new community spaces available for like minded charities and Not for Profit organisations.
After just two years a disused icon on the city of Dallas landscape began a rejuvenation. Since then Hume Community Service Hub has continued to attract Not for Profit organisations delivering services to Hume residents.
The most recent tenant to sign up is Salvos’ Crossroads.They join their fellow service providers Spectrum Migrant Resource Centre, AMES, Uniting Care Kildonan and BRITE.
Spectrum MRC’s Chief Executive Officer Rosemary Kelada, one of the earlier tenants to move in, explained the evolution of the Hume Community Service Hub.
“We recognised the opportunity to develop a community service hub using existing infrastructure at the former Ericsson site in Dallas. Bringing together these organisations has enabled us to work in a collaborative way to provide a holistic approach to service delivery to Hume residents.
“It is a perfect place, close to public transport (both train & bus), ample parking, landscaped gardens and light filled offices,” Kelada said.
“We found a landlord that was willing to work with us to accommodate the needs of NFP tenants. We were offered competitive rents, flexible lease terms, access to common facilities such as board rooms, meeting and training rooms, and existing office furniture and workstations.
Nick Green the Victorian representative for the building owner said: “We are keen to establish a vibrant centre for “Not for Profit” organisations as we really believe that colocation can bring enormous operational and financial benefits to the participants but more importantly, to their clients, to whom we can provide a one stop shop.
“That is the vision, and with the current tenants we are well on the way to realising it.
“The offices are extensive with areas as small as a couple of rooms to whole floors available.The Community Service Hub is air conditioned and with fully compliant fire protection furthermore it is serviced by full time on site staff who supervise maintenance contractors and security personnel,’ he said.
Warehousing and storage is also available on the site.
