Brick by brick we can bring the ‘My Life – Logan’ project to life. With your help, we can raise $250,000 by 30 June in order to complete stage one – laying the foundations.
With your help, together we can right a wrong that’s existed in supported accommodation for decades - a lack of both in quantity and quality.
It’s the theory that someone with a disability should be happy to simply “make do” with housing that’s old, poorly designed, and often doesn’t address their individual needs.
Codenamed ‘My Life – Logan’, this build is important because it hasn’t been designed to simply make do - it's been designed to build independence and pave the way for greater possibilities.
The new residents will have a video intercom for security, WI-FI, and assistive technology such as help alarms in every room, fully accessible bathrooms, and ducted air conditioning. Careful thought and planning will be put into this home, making sure it’s built-in an area close to transport, shops, and services. The home will also have an additional room specifically for carers, so 24/7 support is available while retaining a level of independence and privacy.
In short, our ‘My Life – Logan’ project will offer its residents the very best in a purpose-built home where they can thrive.
Taryn shows what can be gained from living in such a home is incredible.
She is lucky enough to already live in an Endeavour Foundation home where it’s clear she is happy, and Warren knows that she is taken care of 24/7.
“As a father I’ve seen how Taryn has grown both physically and emotionally since moving into one of Endeavour Foundation’s homes.
“She’s more willing to socialise than ever before and is now well known in her local community.
“That’s more than I could have ever asked for even a few years ago.”
Knowing her needs are being met 24 hours a day, Warren’s has comfort that Taryn is now living independently, and growing in her own way each day.
This peace of mind for Warren cannot be understated nor can the changes seen in Taryn and her housemates.
With this one home we can see how this is a dream and need that cannot be overlooked. We can as a community make real change here.
This is why every donation, big or small counts. Any amount you can give will help us achieve the same independence and growth for others like Taryn, in Logan and other areas - brick by brick.
