A new community hub in Ingle Farm
Cornerstone Housing has been successful in receiving a grant of $34,612 from Grants SA to upgrade the kitchen and facilities in the basement area at our local support group Life Church in Ingle Farm.
The new area has become an accessible community hub area for cooking, nutrition and life skills courses. This is to be a space for local Cornerstone tenants and other members of the community to engage in cooking, nutrition, life skills, coffee-making, mums and bubs group, and budgeting courses.
The official opening/dedication took place on 19 May 2019. Dr Richard Harvey member for Newland SA and Amy Hayashi from Mission Australia attended as well as members of Life Church and staff of Cornerstone Housing.
There was a celebration service preceding the official dedication, and guests also enjoyed a sausage sizzle, live music, face painting and kids entertainment.
The Hub has been in full swing since opening in May, providing fortnightly cooking classes and a mothers group to Cornerstone tenants and the wider community. The Hub is open to anyone as a place to learn life skills and connect with others. If you, or anyone you know, would benefit from being involved, contact the Hub.

Every fortnight on Wednesdays, the Hub runs free cooking classes at 3.30pm.
You can grab a free barista coffee, enjoy some friendly faces, and learn to make a simple and nutritious meal. You leave with a recipe card and the meal you have prepared!
LIFE mums group is held fortnightly on Wednesdays from 10.00am–11.30am at the Hub.
Volunteers run an activity for the kids, such as face painting and making food, so the mums can relax and socialise over free coffee and cake.
The group also has an Instagram page (search for @hashtag.mum.life_) and a Facebook group to provide
extra support and information.
