Making history together

2018 is a special year for Mission Australia. Among many milestones is the 40th anniversary of our Family Day Care Western Sydney service and 30 years of the Sleepout – our community-led fundraiser supporting people experiencing homelessness.

In this edition of your Independence newsletter you’ll learn more about our longstanding history – captured through the lens of a dedicated volunteer photographer – as well as recent homelessness statistics, which show the great need for your ongoing support.

As I reflect on Easter, I’m reminded of the inequality of our world and Jesus’ call for us to show compassion, humility and generosity to all. This inspires my determination to help Australians overcome disadvantage and move towards independence.

It encourages me greatly that you share this determination to create change for people in need.

So whether you’ve been supporting us for twenty years or two months, thank you for your continued investment into the lives of vulnerable Australian families and children. We couldn’t do it without you.
