Wellbeing & Community Enrichment Program
Our Wellbeing and Community Enrichment Program is dedicated to fostering resilience, connection, and mental wellbeing.
By addressing pressing issues faced by vulnerable individuals and families, we provide comprehensive support through vital wellbeing checks , 2700 breakfast meals and essential grocery deliveries, supporting vulnerable individuals and families.
Our team provides check-ups and connection points for those in our community who have experienced harm, trauma, hardship and poverty, and may be feeling isolated and disconnected.
With a holistic approach, we also check on physical wellbeing within your home environment.
We empower through regular case management, counselling, resources, and engagement activities, creating stronger, thriving communities together.
We believe no one should go hungry. That’s why we’ve partnered with Hamilton Baptist Church, Woolworths and Catholic Care to host a free hot breakfast every Tuesday morning.
And that’s not all – attendees who bring a bag also
receive a bag of groceries through our partnership
with Oz Harvest, as part of the Wellbeing and Community Enrichment Program.
Join us in our backyard every Tuesday during school term from 8:45-10:30am and let’s enjoy a delicious breakfast together.
Come hungry, leave with a full heart and full bag!
