The Momentum Journey

Home » History

When individuals come together to support their community and empower others, change begins to build. When those groups join forces, their social impact continues to grow. They build Momentum.

Caring for community in Casino

Our journey in providing you with effective community-based support began in 1979. A small group of passionate volunteers came together to form the Casino Neighbourhood Centre. Their aim was to increase access to support services in rural and regional areas. It wasn’t long before they became a vital source of information for the local community. Embraced by Casino and surrounding regions, the Neighbourhood Centre continued to expand their services, staff and support options over the next few decades.

On Track for more

Further north, a small welfare action group was forming in the Tweed Valley. Starting out as the Tweed Heads Community Aid Council, and then the Tweed River Valley Fellowship, members were drawn together by a commitment to supporting those living with mental illness. As their reach grew, the Fellowship positioned themselves as a community-based service. They focused on delivering housing support, outreach programs and rehabilitation options in their region. Inspired by the difference a small amount of support can make, in 2004 they became the On Track Community Program.

On Track then took their vision further, bringing together several community groups across northern New South Wales – MHARS, MOOMBA Accommodation Services, Bay-Ami and the Ballina Community Network. The aim was to strengthen their resources and ensure maximum reach and service delivery. Communities across northern New South Wales benefited from this continued expansion of offerings and support.

Joining forces: building Momentum

Focused always on service first, in 2016 the Casino Neighbourhood Centre and the On Track Community Program combined to create 3SA. United by their common goals and values, this merger enabled the two organisations to improve efficiency and further grow and develop their service offerings.

Proving that collaboration and community are the keys to success, after only two years, 3SA became a focused and effective registered NDIS provider. Together, 3SA took the time to reflect on their values, reiterate their purpose and firmly centre clients at the core of their operations.

Committed to continued partnerships and growth, we relaunched as Momentum Collective in 2018. Focused on sustainability and innovation, the Momentum brand reflects our core belief that together, we are always moving forward – as a community and as individuals.

The next chapter – you

Momentum is the story of you. And me. Those who need an extra hand, and those willing to extend it and work tirelessly to ensure everyone in our community receives the support they need.

Together, we can build Momentum.

Together, we already have.
