Gidget Foundation Australia and Karitane have hung their shingles side by side at Stockland’s Shellharbour center. The co-tenancy means that families, particularly new and expectant parents, now have access to specialist services to help them cope with a range of serious issues (e.g., perinatal depression and anxiety) as well as obtain tips on how to deal with elements of their daily routine, such as sleep and settling, feeding, and handling toddler behavior.

Both outreach organizations will operate from the top-level community room and will add to the increasing diversity of the center’s retail mix.
