Welcome to Hamilton Community House Inc.
Neighbourhood Houses are local organisations that provide social, educational and recreational activities for their communities in a welcoming supportive environment.
There are approximately 360 Neighbourhood Houses across Victoria with at least one Neighbourhood House in just about every town and suburb in Victoria.
Neighbourhood Houses are managed by volunteer committees and paid staff. They offer many opportunities for volunteer participation in all aspects of the house activities and management. Activities are generally run at low or no cost to participants.
A successful Morning Market was held on Saturday March 15th, raising $700 for the house. Thanks to everyone who participated and congratulations to the winner of the Grocery Hamper Raffle, D. Polack, and the Lolly jar competition, J. Hedley.
Now we need to work towards raising the $2000 to purchase a new dust extractor for our Community Shed!
