HEAD OFFICE RELOCATION
Aug 19, 2012
This is a time of historic significance for Whitelion! We farewelled the building that has been our home for the past 12 years in Melbourne, the old Torana Youth Detention facility in Parkville. This has been Whitelion's 'spiritual home' since we first started providing support programs for vulnerable young people back in 1999. Since then we have expanded into over 15 sites in four states - but the old, crumbling building in Parkville was always our home. It was a sad goodbye - but an exciting new beginning for us as we move to a new building in West Melbourne.
This move has been made even more exciting by the fact that we are sharing West Melbourne with Open Family Australia, with whom Whitelion merged in December 2011. There are over 40 Head Office and Program staff in our new building - we are now one big team - and best of all, we will have a dedicated youth space; a safe and vibrant environment where we can welcome in the young people we work with!
We are settling well into our new home. The colour is starting to be splashed on the walls making it a very bright and welcoming environment. Each day we come to work we are impressed with the environment we now work in which reflects on the growth and direction the organisation has achieved. Due acknowledgement and sincere thanks to the following organisations for making our relocation possible through their generosity and dedication:
Altona North Recycling
Construction Cleaning Services
Corporate Window Film Company
Jones Lang LaSalle
One Group ID
|Property Industry Foundation (VIC)
Tenancy Solutions International
A huge thank you to each and everyone.
