Moongala – Caring Through Sharingmoongala


Moongala Community House was established in 1980.  Located in Bentleigh East, we are a not-for-profit community based organisation offering a range of low cost educational & general interest classes,self-help & support groups, friendship groups and sessional childcare & playgroups.

Moongala operates as a collective – membership is available and participation is encouraged.

Our philosophy of “caring through sharing” means that you will always feel welcome and valued.  Feel free to drop in and meet us!

We would like to acknowledge funding received from Southern Metropolitan Regional Council of Adult, Community Further Education (ACFE), the City of Glen Eira and the Department of Human Services and Trinity Parish - St Peter's Community for generously providing the house rent free.  Our thanks to Bendigo Bank - Murrumbeena, for their generous suppport for our Kitchen Table project and to Rotary Club, Bentleigh for a grant for our recently installed cooling at the house. 

We are also delighted to receive a generous donation from Yarra Yarra Golf Club Women's Committee to buy a coffee machine and catering equipment to enable women in our groups to learn new culinary skills.

In 2015 we were successful in winning a Leader Newspaper Local Grant for $1000 to create a Herb and Vegie Patch for our children in our childcare program.  This sparked much enthusiasm throughout the house and assisted us to develop this to redevelop our backyard play area.

 In 2016 we were fortunate to receive a $5000 grant through the Hotham Stronger Communities program to upgrade our childcare area to install new flooring, benchtops and painting. We are grateful to Claire O'Neill MP for Hotham for her continuous support!
