Anglicare Warrnambool's drop-in centre has received a $100,000 renovation to upgrade the 160-year-old building to cater to the growing number of vulnerable people using the space.
Honorary secretary Vern Robson said the centre welcomed around 20 people each morning for a cup of tea.
He was thrilled the upgraded facilities would make the area viable.
"We're seeing an increased number of homeless people using our facilities and many have minor disabilities," he said. "We needed a toilet and shower to cater for everyone and to also improve the wheelchair access.
"It's the 20th year since the drop-in centre has been in operation in Warrnambool. It was timely that we adjust our bathrooms and our rooms for people in need of a cup of tea.
"The upgrade of the facilities to be more user friendly and bring everything up-to-standard."
The total cost of the project was over $100,000 with WDEA Works and the Vedmore Foundation contributing to the funds alongside the Anglican Parish and Anglicare Victoria.
The renovations include a disabled bathroom complete with a shower, male and female bathrooms and an revamp of the kitchen space.
The work is expected to be completed within the month by south-west sub-contractors and builders.
"It will be a wonderful space when it's all finished," Mr Robson said.
