Glendale Home began from humble beginnings in November 1966. A group of concerned people recognised the need for a home for the Jewish intellectually disabled. The original house, now known as the Homestead, was renovated and adapted through the generous sponsorship of the Montague, Rose and Stanley Freeman Trust.
As Community awareness grew, it became clear that the homestead residential facilities were far too limited and in 1971 a major building project was embarked upon. This formed the foundation of the existing home as it is known today. In 1986 owing to increasing demand, an additional wing was built.
Driven by a vision for healthy, active and meaningful lives, our home provides residential, welfare and healthcare services for 47 Jewish adults with profound intellectual disabilities.
Established in 1966 as a registered PBO, Glendale home empowers our residents, aged between 24 and 81, to reach their purpose and potential.
We achieve our mission by:
- Providing clinical support and therapeutic programs that fosters a culture of wellness across our ecosystem
- Nurturing a spirit of Yidishkite, loving kindness and inclusivity throughout the home
- Growing symbiotic partnerships with local communities and global networks to advance our service delivery
- Enhancing our environmental and economical sustainability.
