Gulgong Hostel Association Incorporated was formed in 1987 as a community organisation to raise funds, build and manage a home for the aged and frail. We are a registered charity, so any profit is used to enhance our facility and services.
Our Board of Management is elected annually from our membership with our AGM being scheduled for October each year.
