Upgrades Coming to Warwick’s Crisis Accommodation Hostel    

December 4, 2019

In order for a Warwick crisis accommodation hostel to better support those in need, $3935 has been secured through the Stronger Communities program, Maranoa MP David Littleproud announced today.

“Cornerstone Accommodation and Support Program – which is run by St Vincent de Paul – will use these funds to upgrade the communal kitchen,” Mr Littleproud said.

“All of Cornerstone’s residents will be able to make use of a clean, modern and comfortable kitchen to prepare meals and socialise.

“St Vincent de Paul does great work in our community helping those in need get through tough times and look forward to future success and I’m glad this funding goes some of the way to supporting this organisation.

“I’m a firm believer in bringing people together and improving community services across Maranoa because it has a positive flow-on effect on our quality of life and how we support each other – making improvements to Cornerstone reflects this.

“Our bush communities are the heart of this country and I want to make sure that small capital projects are funded and the community gets exactly what it needs.”

Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme has seen $150,000 in Federal Government funding made available to Maranoa community groups.

Project grants range from $2500 to $20,000 to help bolster rural communities.
