Hotham Mission Update
Hotham Mission has been provisionally successful in two of three applications we made to SHARE: for the Kensington Estate Homework Club ($4800 for the program which was piloted earlier this month), and the Food Service to Mount Alexander College for ($6000)! (“Provisionally” means that this is pending the availability of funds in new financial year, which fluctuates for SHARE each year).
Unfortunately we were unsuccessful for the grant for the Educational Support grant, which is one of our more successful and impactful programs. This was due to the fact that SHARE were inundated for requests this year, not due to the quality of the program or the application itself.
Overall, this is an excellent outcome for Hotham Mission and is recognition of the work we are doing in our immediate community and great encouragement to continue this work.
