Our St Kilda Dining Hall
Often referred to as the heart of Sacred Heart Mission, our Dining Hall in St Kilda provides much more than a free meal. It’s a one-stop-shop where people can get as little or as much support as they require to make important and lasting changes to end their experiences of homelessness for good.
People come to us in large numbers because we provide an informal place where they feel safe and have a sense of belonging. Your support through Dine With Heart means we can continue to deliver this important service to the community.
