Deaf Community Centre Building Project

In 2007, we purchased a land at Loganlea for the purpose of building a community centre for the Deaf. The building will double as a base for DeafCare charity ministry.

The 1350 square metres land is at 1 Kraatz Avenue, Loganlea. It is close to Logan Hospital, Griffith University Logan Campus, shopping centres and commercial area. The land is in the middle of three freeways (Gateway, Logan and Gold Coast). Both Loganlea Railway Station and Logan bus stop are about 200 metres easy walk.

We are building a multi-purpose and deaf-friendly building. We expect, after the completion of the project, to provide more services under DeafCare. Our services had been hindered or delayed because we need the building to provide effective services. the building will also be available for community hiring whenever available.

As of today, after 11 years of hard fundraising we are about $50,000 short to complete and obtain a certificate of occupancy. The fund will cover final stage – disabled specific balustrade (on the ramp), crash barrier, bollards, car park painting and extending island.

We appreciate any donation of cash or above-mentioned materials to build Deaf Community Centre. We love if you can contact us to discuss donation.
