Our Heart

We Love

Are you able to help us help others?

We are always looking to improve the services we deliver by empowering a growing number of friendly volunteers. If you think that could be you we would love to hear from you and discuss what the commitment looks like. All candidates for volunteer positions will undertake an interview and be assessed on suitability. All candidates will require a working with children’s check.

Our Dream

We have a dream to put an end to youth suicide and drug addiction in the 2508 area. It may sound impossible, but why not. With a long history of supporting youth in the area and a large youth group we believe we can make a difference. We have begun this jour- ney with great success already, preventing a number of planned suicides already. We encourage you to watch the video below from people we have helped.
We are so determined to make this a reality that we have taken on the commercial lease of a large factory unit that we have convert- ed into a Youth Centre. The current rent is $650 per week and at this stage we are not producing any income from the use of the premises. Pastor Paul Bedwell said, “When we heard that the Community Youth Centre was closing we just could not stand by and do nothing.
Our dream is to do more and to have a residential facility that could house youth and young adults that were in distress from the 2508 area. We have discovered that bad things happen to good people and good kids from good family’s often take their own lives or turn to drug use. We believe that we (the community of 2508) need to take responsibility to looking after the youth of this town when they find themselves in distress.
We would like to purchase some acreage in the area and provide affordable housing, 24 hour care, and a range of services directed at empowering these youth into gainful employment, a hope for the future, and a sober lifestyle.
Purchasing acreage would also allow us to build a Youth Centre and Men’s shed on site. Currently we are paying commercial rent of $450 per week for our Men’s Shed building.
We would love to create a beautiful sanctuary on the land similar to The Grounds, Alexandria that could provide employment oppor- tunities for local youth and an income to provide all of our services to the community free of charge.
Can you help us make our dream become a reality?

Are you able to help us financially so we can help others?

We rely heavily upon the generosity of others to do what we do and we are most appreciative of any support you may give no matter how small you may think that is.
