Produced by young people for young people, MCM launched its first podcast series this week, Their Journey Home, putting a spotlight on the challenges three of the most overrepresented communities face in Victoria’s youth homelessness system.
As of August 2020, after an exhaustive process which commenced at the end of 2019, Melbourne City Mission was approved by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services to join the National Redress Scheme.
This week marks the beginning of Speech Pathology Week. With more than 1.2 million Australians living with a communication disability, MCM's speech pathologists play an important role in supporting people who have a communication disability.
Although our Early Childhood Intervention Teams have had to quickly adapt our learning environments to deliver our services online, the program is still operating and thriving, and our dedication to supporting the families within our program remains unchanged!
MCM remains committed to providing essential services to all Victorians who need our vital support at this time.
Since its launch in March, RACV’s emergency goods assist service has delivered more than 30,000 meals to vulnerable communities across Victoria impacted by COVID-19.
Melbourne City Mission welcomes the opportunity to present its submission to the Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry into Homelessness at a public hearing on Tuesday 14 July 2020.
MCM is among many not-for-profits benefiting from the generosity of big businesses who are giving food and other essential items at a time when demand on community services organisations is at an all-time high.
Hear from Wayne Merritt, General Manager of our Homelessness and Justice division, and the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on the organisation.
