Sacred Heart Mission

The work of Sacred Heart Mission began in 1982 with Parish Priest, Father Ernie Smith’s welcoming response to those who came knocking on the door of the Presbytery seeking food and shelter.

Since that time, the Mission has continued to respond to the basic needs of those who come seeking assistance. Every day of the year the Mission assists hundreds of people who are homeless or living in poverty to fulfil their physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.

The Mission offers a range of services and support including a meals service, housing assistance, counselling programs, food parcels, emergency financial support, employment programs, sports and recreation activities, arts programs and drug and alcohol support.

We also operate a clinic, mental health team, 3 aged care hostels (83 beds), crisis accommodation for women, 5 Op Shops, a 64-bed rooming house and a drop-in-centre for women.
