We Come Bearing Gifts

  • We Come Bearing Gifts tells the story of the Deohaeko Support Network, a small group of families who strongly believed that their sons and daughter with disabilities, although having complex needs, would live in a home of their own alongside other people who welcomed them. Janet Klees outlines how Deahaeko joined with the Rougemount community to create a place of warmth and acceptance.

Belonging Matters respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Land the Wurrundjeri people of the Kulin nation, and we pay our respect to their Elders both past and present. Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander visitors are warned that this site may contain images/voices of deceased persons which may be distressing for some people.
