In 1994 Hurley House was established as a result of lack of services in the Macarthur district for young adults with intellectual disabilities. With limited funding and a dedicated community support group Hurley House was built. With accommodation for up to five residents, the house was quickly filled and there is still an overwhelming demand to extend this service in the Macarthur area.
Living together as a family, Hurley House teaches basic living skills and seeks to develop a happy, healthy, self supporting unit. It is a program dedicated to specifically meet the special needs of the residents with cooking and cleaning skills. Staff provides support to residents with budgeting and shopping routines.
The residents of Hurley House are happy, healthy young adults, living and working in our community. Our residents work harder than most and it takes longer to be rewarded. However, this does not discourage them in their efforts. They just take smaller steps to reach their goals. All residents are proud of their achievements and enjoy the challenge that new tasks set.
In July 2018, the management of Hurley House was transferred to Uniting Disability.
