The Far South Coast Family Support Service celebrated its move to new premises with members of the community in an open day on Thursday, June 10.
The building was filled with families and members of the community who came together to celebrate, meet the service staff and learn about the support available to the Bega Valley.
Service manager Kristina Brenner said the organisation will be able to offer more services to the community by being in a more appropriate place where members of the community can have the space and a place to connect and grow together.
"I am thrilled that we're able to usher in a new era for family support service in our bigger and better building," Ms Brenner said.
Ms Brenner said that with the office being within walking distance of people's houses and other services, their goal is to become a space where people can drop in.
"What the staff have said to me repeatedly, is how this new space offers the opportunity for us to be a bit more of a hub and a drop in centre for the community, " she said.
"There's lots of opportunities with this building that we definitely haven't had before, in regards to the space that it offers."
