Additional Support

We are the hub between other services that are situated outside of Moranbah

How we began?

ELAM was formed due to the increasing need for crisis accomodation and support for disadvantaged members of our community. The first public meeting to discuss these concerns was held in 1987. Shortly thereafter, funding was received and ELAM Inc was born. It was the hard work and devoted from those early individuals that has allowed ELAM to become what it is today.
