After a long journey and thanks to the support of many partners, the Tree House: Urangan Community Wellness Centre launched in July 2022. Now, a new report shows the benefit this stunning centre has already brought to the community.

We are excited to release our 6-Month Impact Report for July-December 2022, showcasing the incredible progress and achievements made at the Urangan Community Wellness Centre during this period.

The report highlights the success of collaborative investment, facility upgrades, wellness programs, social events, and multicultural initiatives in promoting community development. 

Key 6-month statistics

  • 2534 walk-in visitors to the centre
  • 1002 hours of centre usage
  • 210 external events booked at the centre
  • 1155 people seeking information, advice and referral over the phone

HBNC CEO, Tanya Stevenson, said the results outlined in the report were exciting, with impressive progress achieved in a short period of time.

She said it would not have been possible without a $1.5 million investment from the Australian Government, as well as the support of major partners like the Fraser Coast Regional Council, Metcalfe Constructions and architect Gavin Patterson.

"We are thrilled to share the results of our efforts over the past six months," Tanya said.

"Through partnerships and collaborations with various organizations and community members, we have been able to reinvigorate the Urangan centre, and invest in programs and initiatives that have had a significant impact on the community."

"We are proud of what we have achieved so far but recognise there is still much work to be done. We look forward to continuing our efforts towards building a stronger and more connected community."

The Collaborative Investment section of the report details the partnerships formed to support community development. 

Tanya acknowledged the following supporters, though said there were many more who deserved to be recognised:

  • Wide Bay Rodders, who donated $5000 for the Sensory and Vegetable Garden
  • Hervey Bay Boat Club, who sponsored $2500 for the Library and massage chair
  • All the community members who purchased a $50 Legacy Brick
  • Maryborough Corrections for building picnic tables
  • Tree House Ball attendees and auction/raffle donors
