In Novemeber this year, MCH turns 60 years. Did you know that we were the first centre of its type in Brisbane and was known as the Metropolitan Senior Citizens Centre. Until August 2014 we were based on the corner of Anne and Chruch Streets. In September we opened up in our present location in Qualtrough Street, Woolloongabba. Our role changed from service providers to facility managers and service providers and our name no longer reflected the work that we did. Our new neame, Metro Community Hub was more reflective of our new role.
Did you know though that our beginnings go back to the beginnings of the 1900's with the Brisbane Institute of Social Services. Their aim was to assist mothers and children improve their lives and ran several facilities around Brunswick Street in Fortitude Valley. this model was the precursor for kindergardens.
