STAFF at Miller's The HUB Community Health Centre paused last week to look back over a year in which their achievements surpassed all expectations.
During a celebration to mark the centre's 14th birthday, community development manager Evan Giannakis said the centre had helped 1400 more people during 2013 than it had during 2012.
In this record-breaking year, the HUB provided crisis intervention, health and welfare referrals and healthy lifestyle programs to 9400 people living in the 2168 postcode.
"We ran some very well-received projects, including gentle exercise, yoga and Zumba classes, a regular walking group, women's craft group, men's support group and Arabic and Vietnamese Women's group," Mr Giannakis said.
"Over the past 12 months, the HUB has also helped deliver a number of popular community events, including a men's health forum, an alcohol forum and a domestic violence forum for White Ribbon Day 2013.
"We've been able to do this by partnering with a number of great local groups."
Mr Giannakis said HUB staff and volunteers had seen many positive changes in Miller over the years.
"We know from our clients how important this service in Miller is, and how much they appreciate simple things like access to a telephone, fax and photocopier," he said.
"The HUB has played an important part in the Miller community over the past 14 years, and we are so pleased that we are still playing our part locally to connect people and improve lives."
