It’s official. The new Lighthouse Vicki Vidor Home for Mothers and Babies, built and donated by Property Industry Foundation (PIF) and Henley Properties was officially opened on Monday 6 June.
Our heartfelt thanks go to all of the extraordinary companies and individuals involved in creating this stunning new six bedroom home. Thank you to Moreland City Council for donating the land, to Property Industry Foundation and Henley Properties Group for generously building the home and to all of the suppliers and tradespeople whose commitment ensured such quality finishes and fittings throughout the home.
We especially acknowledge Vicki Vidor for her continued commitment in supporting our young mums and bubs program. This support will enable the Lighthouse Model of Care to be provided within the home, ensuring that every mother and baby resident can get off to a strong and healthy start together.
Lighthouse’s remarkable Terrie Barton worked closely with the team at PIF and Henley over the past year and she got a little teary yesterday watching the first young mum excitedly choose her room, soon after the officials and dignitaries had left the opening event.
It takes vision, courage and commitment to build a home as special as this and we thank everyone involved, from the earliest supporters, such as Cr Oscar Yilditz, right through to those who helped with landscaping, furnishings, and décor.
