Make a donation to help struggling families flourish

Mission Australia believes in strong families and happy, healthy children. But long-term unemployment, relationship breakdown, domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, low literacy or numeracy or generational disadvantage create challenges for some families who struggle to avoid homelessness.

Last year alone Mission Australia supported 85,917 families and children through 174 children and family services.

Working holistically, we partner with families in need, creating carefully tailored plans of action that help families not only overcome immediate challenges, but become strong over the long term.

We tackle family homelessness by securing short or medium-term accommodation or affordable accommodation.

Our Early Learning Centres and Communities for Children early intervention programs provide strong foundations for children and our family hubs cater for the needs of every family member, including  financial counseling; mental health support; case management; early childhood intervention services; counseling; employment services, and migrant and refugee services.

We stand alongside struggling families while they get back on their own feet. This way, children can thrive, and these families become the ‘glue’ that binds and strengthens communities together. It’s donations like yours that help us make a lasting difference.
