MCM believes that all people should have every opportunity to live the life they aspire to, their way and build a future they choose.
Our focus is on creating new possibilities for children, young people and adults experiencing disadvantage.
Our range of services, and our presence across Victoria continues to expand, as we identify new opportunities for positive change.
It's about empowering and supporting people to develop their own path away from disadvantage, towards living their best life.
Melbourne City Mission has been around almost as long as Melbourne itself.
Our establishment in 1854 was one of Melbourne’s earliest innovations.
We've continued to embrace innovation and creativity to meet the changing needs of our communities.
From creating Australia’s first one-stop-shop for young people experiencing homelessness, to founding a new school at the cutting edge of flexible and supportive education, innovation has always been at the core of what we do at MCM.
Positive change starts with awareness and education.
We give a voice to people who are currently facing barriers in achieving their best life, to incite positive change in the wider community.
By sharing stories, raising our voices, and encouraging people to learn about the communities around them, we hope to give everyone the chance to live their life, their way.
