Every day, Melbourne City Mission works with some of Melbourne and Victoria’s most vulnerable individuals, families and communities. Every week, we help thousands of people escape and avoid disadvantage, economic exclusion and social isolation. We’ve been around for almost as long as Melbourne itself and over the years have adapted and evolved alongside the people we work with, always responding to the changing needs of communities.
We work with the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our society. From children living with a disability, or young people with nowhere to call home, to people who need assistance into education or employment, we work alongside them, so they can build a better future for themselves. We help people find their own path to independence, providing them with the support they need along the way.
While we support people experiencing disadvantage, we also advocate for social change to reduce the number of people experiencing disadvantage and to intervene as early as possible to limit the damage done by the experience.
