It’s such an amazing feeling to finally be at the day when we can say, Mary’s House is opening this week. What a journey over the past 19 months since a small group from our community came together to float the idea that we could establish a community funded domestic violence Refuge in North Sydney. Every fortnight for the past 19 months, our core group of volunteers have met every second Monday night and worked through ideas, issues, opportunities and challenges which has been a wonderful, frustrating and incredibly rewarding journey.
And so today, before we open this week, we’d like to thank all of you who made this journey possible. There’s a lot of you so bear with me as I chronicle our journey.
