Get involved Our Appeals Fundraising Pavers for St Anthony's Village Donate Fundraise Brand a paver at new St Anthony’s Family Care Village St Anthony’s Family Care invite members of the public to donate a commemorative paver at the new St Anthony’s Care Village in Croydon, Sydney. In September 2019, St Anthony’s Family Care broke ground on the re-development of a large 5,500m2 site in Croydon over the next 14 months, constructing an Inclusive Early Learning Centre, three short-term residences for young people with disabilities, and an activity centre for children and young people with disabilities. The single-storey village on Alexandra Avenue will offer state-of-the-art facilities in a beautiful environment enabling St Anthony’s to continue to service the local community for many decades to come. Construction for this is well underway and completion of Stage 1 is expected in early 2020. The site re-development is fully funded through many years of support from donors and has not received any government funding. On completion of the re-development in October 2020, a commemorative path of pavers will be laid through the centre of the village St Anthony’s Family Care and the Sisters of St Joseph invite the public to buy a commemorative paver as part of a fundraising effort to assist with construction costs. Joanna Najdzion, Chief Executive Officer for St Anthony’s Family Care, said “St Anthony’s Family Care is proud to provide a new Village for children and young people, including young people living with disabilities. Purchasing a paver is a great way to be part of St Anthony’s history and to mark your support of this important project. “The commemorative pavers can contain printed text, a hand-sketched drawing, or a company logo – we invite the public to get as creative as they like to support children and young disabled people in our community,” she said. “The number of pavers available is limited, so be sure to get in fast!” she added. St Anthony’s Family Care has been meeting the needs of children and families in the inner west since 1952, in affiliation with the Sisters of Saint Joseph and the Josephite Ministries.
