CWA Goulburn Evening branch members have contributed cleaning products for Mission Australia's Sustaining Tenancies in Social Housing Program.
The branch president Marilyn Manfred delivered the donated products this week together with donations from some of Goulburn's retailers including Bunnings and Best Buys.
The donation was made after Daniel Strickland, Mission Australia area manager for Southern NSW and ACT shared his interesting life story as well as the many areas of community work delivered by the organisation at the branch meeting.
Mission Australia is a not-for-profit organisation providing community services.
Meleesa Warn, Sustaining Tenancy case manager, was on hand to accept the delivery of cleaning products.
The Sustaining Tenancy in Social Housing Program supports tenants identified, as at risk of termination.
This can be for any number of factors including financial and/or health and wellbeing issues that have led to concerns such as hoarding and squalor and/or rent arrears.
The program provides case management through a holistic approach to determine what is affecting the tenant's ability to maintain their tenancy.
With financial struggles often affecting tenants, food and utility costs come first before being able to purchase cleaning products, which can add to the financial burden.
The donations of the cleaning products are greatly appreciated by tenants to enable them further with taking pride within the home and working upon living in a clean and healthy environment. This has a flow on effect with maintaining their tenancy.
CWA Goulburn Evening Branch is a part of the Country Women's Association of NSW and meets on the fourth Monday evening each month.
A diverse group of women enjoy a varied range of activities and welcomes new members and supporters.
