Sacred Heart Mission is an innovative not-for-profit organisation providing individualised support and services to people who are experiencing homelessness and disadvantage. We have developed a reputation as a respected and well-known social services provider that understands homelessness and uses creative, evidence-based solutions to address it.
It is only through the generosity of people like you that we can continue to provide vital services in your community. To find out more about how the individual services we offer are making a difference, and what impact you can make, please visit our ‘impact’ page.
In accordance with Sacred Heart Mission’s rules of association we use all donations received towards furthering our purposes of alleviating and preventing homelessness, poverty and social isolation. Your gift will have a big impact on the lives of people living with disadvantage.
Sacred Heart Mission is funded through a combination of government funding and community support. The split is roughly 50% through local, state and federal funding and 50% through our op shops and fundraising activities. This varies slightly year on year, depending on government funding priorities.
All operation and overhead costs are wrapped up within individual program area budgets, and total cost associated with delivering each program can be found in our annual reports. At Sacred Heart Mission, we understand our impact is the biggest measure of success, and we continuously work towards lowering internal spending while delivering the best possible service to the most marginalised people.
Sacred Heart Mission operates on a cash flow basis, so any income received is spent on our program and service areas. A small portion is invested through fundraising activities – all with the objective of delivering our strategic goals. To give you an idea of the effectiveness of the fundraising delivered at the Mission, in the 2020-21 financial year, for every $1 spent (including all marketing and wages costs) $3.12 was raised.
