A brief history
The Geraldine Community Resource Centre was established in 2007 for the purpose of meeting the diverse needs of all people living in the Geraldine community by providing access locally to essential information and services.
We are governed by an independent charitable trust so we are able to tailor our services to effectively meet current local needs. We have done this very successfully so demand for our services has grown exponentially from an average of 122 clients accessing our services per month in 2008/9, to an average of 800 clients per month at present.
