The year 2016, has been exciting and challenging for the Board Members and of the Aboriginal Male’s Healing Centre Strong Spirit Strong Families Strong Culture Inc (AMHC).
The AMHC has played a major role in addressing the innovative need for arresting family and domestic violence, as well as contributing to the establishment of a project for a mandatory residential rehabilitation centre for Aboriginal males who use violence with the objective of enhancing the need for AMHC in the Pilbara region.
The need to encourage and coordinate the development of the required infrastructure to service the needs of the region, will continue to provide a major focus for the AMHC activities. The commitment to construct the Rehabilitation Centre has resulted in a number of professional partnerships who are specialists in their field, and financial partners, join AMHC in our quest for our vision.
The end of 2016, from AMHC’s perspective has been rewarding and fulfilling. We have tentatively secured land to lease, in partnership with the Shire of East Pilbara. We are in negotiations with Department of Corrective Services, and may possibly have a contract in July 2017. We also have secured the services of professional Architects and a Submission Writer, with an Accountant. We also have applied for a $300,000 Grant with RfR’s.
What a productive 2016. Moving into 2017, shall be a continuation of what has been achieved throughout the past year. Of course, there shall be ongoing negotiations with all relevant stakeholders, concerned with the construction process of AMHC. I do believe, however, that we shall achieve our goals, and secure significant outcomes in 2017.
Thank you for all your ongoing support and dedication with this innovative project, AMHC.
