Odyssey House Hope Centre
Community Partnership – Odyssey House – Hope Centre
As a foundation partner of the Odyssey House – Hope Centre, Loy Yang B contributed to both the construction and ongoing operations of the first residential alcohol and other drugs rehabilitation centre in Gippsland.
The 58-bed centre commenced operations in April 2020, amid the COVID pandemic, and has already seen some residents successfully transition through the program and back into society.
Our support for the centre over three years totalled $490,000 as follows.
- Contribution to building construction, including a solar energy package in the first year;
- The equivalent of three additional beds committed to Latrobe Valley residents for a further two years.
Hope Centre Board secretary and treasurer John Glynn described the partnership as an “outstanding success”.
“(Loy Yang B has been) an immense support for Hope Restart Centre in building the facility, and for Odyssey House Victoria in funding additional beds,” he said.
“The installation of solar power has been most successful in keeping costs down to the amazing extent of 93% over two comparable periods.”
We are impressed by the progress of the facility and how far it has come since the turning of the first sod on the greenfield site in February 2019, and congratulate the dedicated team of volunteers who made their vision for the centre a reality.
