The long, desperate search is over for the Multicultural Council of Griffith, which has finally found a new building to call home.
On Monday the multicultural council proudly flung open its doors to its new headquarters, which is located inside the Crystal Arcade on Banna Avenue next to Gordon the Barber.
The OTA Tongan women's group have already made the place feel like home, decorating the interior with traditional handmade crafts and woven leaf mats.
The grand opening marks the end of a year-long search for the multicultural council, which had temporarily set up shop at the Masonic Lodge on Benerembah Street.
The launch of the new headquarters comes to the immense relief of multicultural council president Carmel La Rocca.
"It's the perfect spot; it's in a great location and people can access it easily," she said.
"It's a lovely arcade, and hopefully we can bring a bit of life back into it."
Ms La Rocca said that they could now start offering more services and use their grant funding to hire the services of an Italian and an Afghani bilingual worker.
Justice of the Peace Litia Kosi will be there from Monday to Friday to help people fill in immigration paperwork and become a part of the Griffith community.
"Our new office is really good for us," Mrs Kosi.
"I feel really happy."
