Launch of the Community Cafe at The Salvation Army Balga
On the 11th November 2013, The Salvation Army Balga opened the Community Cafe that is about providing a place for people to enjoy free coffee, cake and a chat whilst accessing any range of community services. During Anti Poverty Week in October, it was highlighted that one of the most engaging activities that we all enjoy is having a coffee with family or a friend, however for many this was outside of the rhelms of possibility due to poverty and a social isolation within relationship structures.
The Salvation Army at Balga is endeavouring to improve the social interactions of those struggling with disadvantage and despair through this simple offer of coffee and cake and a smile. With other services offered at The Salvation Army to assist with personal needs, it is about providing holistic programs that seek to bring health and well being in a dignified manner to all. The Community Cafe is about saying that "We Care".
