Fed govt paying for Adele's facelift
LOCAL rehabilitation service Adele House is set for a facelift, after being awarded $145,000 in Federal Government funding to expand their centre.
Adele was awarded the funding under the Department of Health and Ageing's Amphetamine Type Stimulus Grants Program, and director Vince Tempone couldn't be happier.
He said the $145,000 means the non-profit organisation will now be able to expand to accomodate more residents. “It's fantastic. We will be using the funding to build a new space so we can house additional clients.”
“We're in the process of getting quotes now, and subject to council approval, we should get started in the next couple of months.” Mr Tempone said the program at Adele was about helping drug and alcohol affected people become healthy not just physically but mentally and spiritually.
