Welcome to the December edition of What’s Happening at YourPlace.
As the incoming CEO, I feel incredibly privileged to be working for an organisation that is deeply committed to providing suitable and affordable housing to you and your families.
I have spent two decades working in housing, in the government, non-government, and private sectors. I am excited to be back in the community housing sector as it offers the greatest opportunity to directly work towards providing better houses and better services.
2020 has been a challenging year. We are fortunate that so far South Australia has not had to endure the same hardships as other places in Australia and internationally. Our community has still felt the impact. The YourPlace Board and staff members are keenly aware of this and are eager to ensure that we play our part in supporting people who are doing it tough through this difficult time.
I am hopeful that restrictions will continue to ease, and that we can start to reignite some of our community engagement activities in the early New Year. I am very much looking forward to meeting many of you over the coming weeks and months to hear your thoughts and ideas about YourPlace, and I am also eager to share with you some of the great things we are hoping to achieve into the future.
On behalf of the team at YourPlace we would like to wish you and your loved ones a restful and happy Festive Season, and we hope that the New Year sees your home filled with laughter, love and good health.
