Your donation will help struggling young families into secure housing, support young people who are battling addiction or mental health issues, and give men and women who have experienced more than their share of hard knocks a sense of purpose and confidence.

We believe prevention is better than cure – so many Mission Australia services help people to avoid the pitfalls and gain the skills to take on future challenges.

When you choose to take a stand, every dollar we receive – from donations to appeals, the ongoing commitments from our regular givers, or money from community fundraising events – makes a difference.

In 2016, Mission Australia helped more than 130,000 Australians to get back on their feet and move towards independence, including more than 27,000 people through our families, children and early learning services.

We can’t transform their lives without the generous donations we receive from our supporters like you.
