It all starts with a welcome, a meal, a relationship…

Every day of the year, we welcome adults of all ages and backgrounds who are experiencing homelessness, disadvantage and social exclusion to a free meal, care and support.

Since opening our doors in 1982 to share a meal with the community's most vulnerable members, we have evolved into an independent non-profit organisation renowned for effectively helping thousands of people experiencing homelessness to rebuild their lives.

At the heart of everything we do, we recognise everybody is unique. No matter where people are in their journey, we are here to support them and we do not give up. Everyone is welcome at our table. Through our wide-ranging services, research and innovation we strongly advocate for an inclusive, fair and compassionate community where people can overcome disadvantage and have a contributing life.

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 disadvantages 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.
