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.
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.
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.
