Since opening our doors in 1982 to share a meal with the most vulnerable members of the community, we have evolved into an independent non-profit organisation renowned for effectively helping thousands of people experiencing homelessness to rebuild their lives.
Here at the Mission, we see new personal strengths, achievements and optimism unfold for people every day. With someone in their corner, people who have faced extraordinary disadvantage and repeated episodes of trauma can find the courage to face the challenges in their life. We are in this for the long haul - we are committed to making a sustainable difference in people’s lives.
We offer more than 20 programs and services, delivered in collaboration with a network of specialist, referral and service partners to provide wraparound support for our clients. We rely on the continued support of government, philanthropy, community donations, and volunteers to deliver these programs.
The minimum age for volunteering is 15. Teenagers can volunteer in our op shops individually (Windsor, Hawthorn, Fitzroy and Bentleigh) and also at the Meals Program (through school volunteering), where you will be part of a group. To volunteer in other areas, you must be 18 years or above.
