Kris was one of 19 residents living at Cobram residential disability facility Merriwa Grove in northern Victoria when it was announced in early June that it would close because it was no longer viable.

With the facility officially closing at the end of this month, NDIS provider Social Plus Support Work (SPSW) has managed to lease three homes long-term in Yarrawonga for nine of Merriwa’s residents, including Kris.
