We are so absolutely honoured and humbled to be the first ever winner of the Toowoomba Together “Business” Community Award.
A little excerpt from the Toowoomba Together Post:
Protea Place received this award in recognition of “The magical support web they weave, which ensures the continuum of safety and the preservation of dignity to those less fortunate within our community. The impact on our local community is immeasurable.
Not only do they help so many women and families but they were one of the only agencies that stayed open during the whole of Covid lockdown, to make sure everyone had a safe place to go. Instead of closing the doors they opened them wide for people to go if they needed support with DV, homelessness, showers, food etc.
Protea Place also have assisted women to create homes with their Welcome Home project, Oakey outreach, free daily lunches, health support and advocate for women in Family court and child safety issues”
