A partnership between genU and the Tara’s Dream Foundation has raised $300,000 to build housing for people with a disability in the Bellarine area.
The housing development is currently being built on land granted by the City of Greater Geelong and will provide fully accessible accommodation and enhance the lives of young people living with a disability.
The development comprises a five-bedroom house plus staff accommodation on one block, a two-bedroom and two one-bedroom units on the second block and a communal outdoor living area.
Tara McGowan was just 23 years of age and in her third year of studying to becoming a Special Needs Teacher when she tragically passed away in May 2015, from an asthma attack.
Tara was very passionate about working towards moving young people out of nursing homes and into residential accommodation within the community. Through the incredible generosity of everyone who contributed to this appeal, Tara’s Dream is becoming a reality
