Be Social


Kaleb Holliday

This week (15/6/20) our first participant for 2020 gained a lease for a private rental! Kaleb Holliday, a young Indigenous man from Tasmania moved into Nyirrwa Murrgurlayi to take part in the Employment and Education Housing (EEH) Program at the end of 2018. Kaleb was employed part-time at a local lunch bar and was part of the Transition to Work Program offered by Nyamba Buru Yawuru. Since moving to Nyirrwa Murrgurlayi, Kaleb set goals with our Case Support Worker including gaining his Learner’s Permit, gaining secure employment and learning to cook.

Kaleb has been a great addition to our Nyirrwa Murrgurlayi family. Kaleb plays guitar, so often had it outside playing along with other participants in the house. He is friendly and willing to get involved in what’s going on at the house.

After the lunch bar Kaleb worked at closed down, Kaleb did some volunteering and continued his search for employment. Late in 2019, Kaleb gained employment at Woolworths and also gained his Learner’s Permit. He has been working consistently and despite COVID-19 restrictions continued to reach his goals, those of which included learning to budget and save his income. The housing market is very difficult to get into in Broome and after a few unsuccessful attempts applying for his own place, has just secured a private rental with his partner. We couldn’t be more proud of Kaleb and his achievements – he is a great example of what can be achieved with the EEH Program. You’ll be missed Kaleb!
