May 2010 Bibliography : pp. 52-53

In the 1970s, in the newer areas of population growth in the south-eastern suburbs, people of faith responded again to the needs of families with young children and teenagers by establishing relevant programs through Grassmere Youth Services and the Wheelers Hill Family Centre. Over the ensuing years, these programs expanded rapidly as more needs and ways of addressing these were identified. This booklet briefly explores the background and work of each of these agencies before they united to become a new organisation in May 2000. The reflections of some of the key figures in Connections' history and other staff directly involved also add a more personal element to the organisational changes. Innovation and initiative has driven this work over the years, and this approach is integral to Connections' current programs, some of whose achievements are outlined in this publication.
