We are a not-for-profit, community managed organisation committed to providing enhancing, empowering and engaging community programs  for the people living in the City of Gosnells and surrounding areas. The centre coordinates programs that aim at supporting and empowering families and individuals to build on their knowledge, confidences and skills to encourage their personal growth. The centre is located on land that was kindly donated by Don Russel Holdings, and was officially opened on 28 November 1992 with funding by the Western Australia Government in cooperation with the City of Gosnells and has been assisting and engaging with the community since then. Our organisation works with  the community on a regular basis through census information, feedback and information provided by other organisations to ensure we are always working towards providing services that meet community needs.
