Baptcare Affordable Housing celebrates the official opening of Wangaratta development
On Thursday 12 May, Baptcare Chairman Philip Curtis, along with Baptcare CEO Graham Dangerfield, Administrator Irene Grant from the Rural City of Wangaratta, Leisa Maskin, Manager Housing Services from the Rural Housing Network Limited and Tim McCurdy, Member for Ovens Valley proudly opened our affordable housing development in Wangaratta. We have an existing 11 affordable housing units and are now providing a further 16 units and townhouses.
Baptcare launched Baptcare Affordable Housing a few years ago, with an exciting vision to become a significant provider of affordable housing that is well located and well-built for even the lowest income families in our community. Housing extends to more than just having a roof overhead- it is about having a place to call home. It is about stability and security. Although our investment is in the bricks and mortar of these projects, our inspiration and drive comes from our desire to engage with and serve the people who will benefit from these affordable housing projects.
Administrator Irene Grant from the Rural City of Wangaratta said of the development - "This is a very exciting event for Wangaratta. The addition of 16 affordable housing units will make a big difference to many people's lives. On behalf of the Rural City of Wangaratta I would like to commend Baptcare for this initiative".
