About Our Community

Our Port Kembla centre provides a caring hub where a range of services are delivered, including access to low-cost nutritional food, supported playgroups for families, client referral and advocacy, supported accommodation for women and children escaping domestic violence and chaplaincy services. The centre also provides an opportunity for connection, a place for people to drop-in for a wholesome meal. Respecting the individuality of all, the centre is a safe and welcoming place where people living with disadvantage can address key issues including social and financial exclusion, mental health challenges, drug and alcohol dependence, and housing needs.

Who We Are

We are proud of the work we do, the services we deliver and the programs we offer – but most of all, we are proud of our community. This is what makes BaptistCare special. We are a community of people who respect one another’s individuality, and who value the support and friendship that comes from an  improved quality of life. We are passionate about life transforming care. This is because we practise it every day, in countless ways. At BaptistCare we encourage independence whilst strongly valuing the connections we share within our community. This is the BaptistCare difference. Together, we provide care you can trust.

Services

Drop-in Centre
The Community Centre plays an integral role in the Port Kembla community as a drop-in centre for street-based sex workers, homeless persons and people living on the margins. The Centre provides a safe-place where some of the most lonely and vulnerable people in our community are supported to address key issues, such as personal health, drug and alcohol dependence, mental health and housing needs. Responding with compassion, practical care and support, the service assists clients in developing skills to build independence and resilience.
Supported Accommodation

BaptistCare provides supported accommodation to women and children escaping domestic violence. Accommodation locations are undisclosed to protect our client's privacy and to ensure their safety. All families have access to individual counselling as well as a range of ongoing supportive, educational, financial and parenting programs tailored to meet the individual's needs.

Wholesome Meals
Our Community Centre provides regular sit-down meals, offering a wholesome meal and an opportunity to build positive relationships in a safe and welcoming place.

Contact BaptistCare directly for all enquiries about this facility and its services, or general care information.
