Our vision is to see people in tough places flourish. We believe God cares deeply for the marginalized in society and our mission is to join in with Him to help people flourish emotionally, socially, economically and spiritually.
We are faith-based but not faith-biased and seek to benefit people no matter what their religion, race, sexual orientation or disability. We try to model Christ-centeredness, grace, care, trust and interdependence within our team and with others. We often partner with other organisations for the benefit of the community.
LifeCare employs transformational community development theory in our approach to strengthening families and the community. This theory proposes that the use of mutually beneficial partnerships with individuals and organisations can bring increased social capital in the community. Therefore, LifeCare priorities include developing interdependent relationships with local partners across the community.
How We Transform Lives
People struggling in our community were supported to build the resilience, skills and community needed for a brighter future and lasting transformation.
Individuals were provided confidential, caring and holistic counselling for a wide range of issues including relationship challenges, depression and anxiety, domestic violence and addictions.
People who were isolated and doing life tough found regular nourishment and a place to belong through our community meals program.
People facing financial challenges were empowered by one-to-one financial coaching to gain the tools, resources and practical assistance necessary to gain victory over their challenges.
Families and individuals were mentored (using the COACH program) to set and achieve life goals such as education, employment, parenting, and improved physical and emotional wellbeing.
Women and children struggling to recover from domestic violence were supported on their journey of healing, recovery and growth at LifeCare Women’s Centre.
Families and Individuals received nourishment and care when they needed it most through food parcels.
