Volunteering in our residential facility is a wonderful and engaging experience that directly supports people experiencing homelessness and social disadvantage.

Sacred Heart Mission is a local Melbourne charity focused on elevating disadvantage, social exclusion, and homelessness.

And both sides benefit as often a long lasting friendship grows.
