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

“I had no one else to help me.”

Brigit* fled her husband, who had abused her physically, financially, and psychologically for many years, after he turned on his children including two whom required significant care due to disability.

“I was overwhelmed. I was just finished with the relationship. I had had enough, and I wanted out. My husband started telling the kids terrible things like he was going to kill himself. And I was concerned for their safety,” said Brigit.

“He had hurt me before and he had to do anger management programs. He just went back to his old ways. I suddenly realised he was never going to change.”

When faced with adversity there’s a point where one can’t take anymore. It’s something we witness often. We call it the breaking point.
