Anna Hall Memorial Fund


Anna Hall served as Springvale Community Aid and Advice Bureau’s Executive Director for 11 years from 2004-2015. Her commitment to human rights, education and the alleviation of poverty was unstoppable propelling her to grow the organization from a 1.5 million dollar entity to a 4+ million dollar not for profit organization.

Anna was instrumental in the restructuring of the organization which led to the development of Youth Links as a leading youth service, and she was the driving force behind the most recent merger with Dandenong Community Aid and Advice Bureau and Southern Ethnic Advisory and Advocacy Council.

Prior to joining Springvale Community Aid and Advice Bureau Anna was the Manager for Community and Social Planning for the City of Greater Dandenong where she was committed to ensuring that Dandenong and Springvale community organisations focussed on a broad range of social justice and community support issues were supported by a robust Council Community Grants Scheme. Anna was also passionate in leading with a holistic approach to community safety involving many community organisations with council, the police, local churches and the various local ethnic elders.  

In 2018 Anna Hall sadly passed away, leaving behind her husband Bill and two daughters Danielle and Cassie. In memory of Anna and her indomitable spirit, South East Community Links has established the Anna Hall Memorial Fund.

This fund will support the work of our newly established Bridge to Social and Economic Mobility. The Bridge covers 6 main areas of an individual’s life: Diversity, Participation and Opportunities; Family Stability; Employment and Career Opportunities; Education and Learning; Financial Management and Wellbeing.  Clients receive intense coaching to develop and strengthen their problem solving and decision making skills to acquire greater control and understanding of key aspects of their lives. 

This fund and your donation will provide clients with meaningful resources and incentives to help them with their employment, education and wellbeing. Examples of incentives may include, but are not limited to: educational costs such as enrolment or training fees, text books, childcare costs to attend training, employment related costs such as tickets, or clothing to attend interviews and wellbeing costs to support clients with nurturing their physical or psychological wellbeing.

With inspiring stories unfolding, we look forward to sharing our positive outcomes with you in the future.
