Hope Lives Here

We offer unique services that meet the local needs of disadvantaged communities and people living on the margins, by reaching out to those who feel they are on the outside. We're passionate about creating strong and caring communities who value personal wellbeing, and each other.

We connect with people, and families who are trying to overcome great personal trials, such as relationship breakdown, domestic violence, long-term unemployment, homelessness, and mental health or addiction issues. We also come around people who are caught in a cycle of poverty and debt, and often have diminished choices and opportunity to break out of this.

How We Help

“My income was important to us as a little family.”

When Laney’s* maternity leave came to an end, she found out her position no longer existed. The mother of a five-month-old and a two-year-old had no job to return to.

“I am desperately trying to find another job while I take care of my children and husband Scott*, who has a disability. Between formula, nappies and wipes for my babies, it comes to about $60 every week, which is a lot when we have no income coming in. We’re currently living off my husband’s disability pension.”

Laney is limited in the support she can receive from the Australian Government due to her recent citizenship change. “My husband is Australian, I’m originally from America. I received support as a temporary resident but the moment I became a permanent resident I now have to wait four years to access 95% of Centrelink payments,” said Laney.
