The Pomona and District Community House, or the House as it is called, links people, skills and resources to advance the social well-being and capacity of the local community to become diversified, vibrant and strong. We believe everyone can contribute they just need to be encouraged and supported.The House devises its activities and community outreach each year, based on the knowledge and understanding of a management committee supported by volunteers and two part-time employees. It assists existing community groups, where necessary, through practical support and hire of facilities. Consistent with its own objectives, the House also fosters new start-up groups. For instance, it is working currently to develop a community garden and Pomona Men’s shed organisation. We aim to boost volunteerism locally.In addition, through Cooroora Connect, Pomona’s monthly community newspaper, we publicise our own program of activities and promote the work of others.
