On our blog we talk about the issues, news, stories and thoughts that relate to Sacred Heart Mission's work to tackle homelessness and disadvantage in Australia.

The Mission’s newest op shop in Preston is a treasure trove

Last year’s opening of Sacred Heart Mission’s op shop in Preston brought its number of second-hand stores to an even dozen.

Spotlight on the Volunteer Department

With 1,800 volunteers to manage and various services to keep running, there needs to be a dedicated team on hand and that’s where the Volunteer Department comes in.

Mission Champion Licia and Vitoria

This Mother’s Day, we spoke to Vitoria Silva about how her mum Licia inspired her to join the volunteer team at one of Sacred Heart Mission’s op shops, despite both of them being at very different stages of their lives. 

What is the one thing you would tell the would-be Prime Minister?

This is what we asked our staff in the lead up to the federal election, in a time when homelessness has reached crisis point in Australia.

Celebrating J2SI Phase Two successes

Our second iteration of the J2SI program finished in March. At the end of the program, 85 per cent of people remain in safe and appropriate long-term housing.

First residents move in

The first 29 residents have moved into our new building on 101 Grey Street in St Kilda, marking the first milestone of our most transformational redevelopment in the Mission’s 36-year history.

Mission Champion Karen Moore

Karen Moore believes eating nutritious food should be a basic human right, even if you do not have a home. And she’s right.

A Letter To Our Would-be Prime Ministers

There is one big and brave policy commitment Scott Morrison and Bill Shorten can make now: commit to public housing investment and help end homelessness.
