Family Haven Mooroopna
The Family Haven provides a safe space where parents and carers and their children are welcomed with no referral or appointment. It is located in the same premisis as the Mooroopna Anglican Church at 15-17 Young Street, Mooroopna (the old SPC canteen) and is open Tuesday to Thursday from 9.30am - 3pm. After an initial COVID-19 lockdown, the Family Haven has resumed normal operations.
Parents and children can relax, engage with staff and volunteers, share a meal and connect with other parents. The focus is on play and fun. Maree from GV Pregnancy Support comes along each Tuesday to participate and provide quality secondhand goods for families as needed.
