As I sit here reflecting on the incredible event that came together today I’m struck by so many different thoughts. Although I knew in my heart that people are incredible and they are often looking for avenues to share love and support to others, today I got to see that love in action. And my heart just about burst right out of my chest. I had an idea to bring isolated single parents and their children together on Christmas Day so they’d have somewhere to to spend Christmas where they’d be welcomed. I knew I couldn’t do it on my […]
On Friday we we’re absolutely honoured and so blessed to meet Beth and the staff from Aurecon in Docklands and pick up this incredible collection of gifts.

We’ve got a lot of very exciting things happening at The Kala Space over the next few months, including a brand new outdoor area and cafe where we will be providing more employment opportunities for women experiencing homelessness. We can’t wait to share it all with you, however for safety reasons we’ll be holding off on our drop off days and Courtyard use until further notice. Our builders are busy coming and going and we want everyone to stay safe so please bare with us while we go through these changes. We promise they’ll be worth it in the end!
