The Greek Orthodox Community Home for the Aged (Elliniko Spiti) is a venture of the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW with additional funding provided through the state and commonwealth governments. The campaign for the Greek Orthodox Community Home for the Aged began in 1987, soon after in 1988 land was purchased in the residential area of Earlwood which was to be the site of the hostel.
To assist with the effort and successful completion of the home, the Greek Orthodox Community established a separate sub-committee for fund-raising purposes.
Greek brotherhood organisations and the Greek community at large responded to appeals and fund raising events held by the hostel’s sub-committee. Their overall generosity and willingness to donate far exceeded our expectations. These donations enabled the commencement of construction in 1991, with completion being achieved in early 1992.
With thanks to many volunteers, the Greek community and Greek brotherhood organisations, the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW is able to provide accommodation for the elderly Greek of our community.
The Council of the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW and the Board of Directors of the home are responsible for the operations of The Greek Community Home for the Aged (Elliniko Spiti).
