We Care Community Services is a Not-For-Profit organisation that was founded in 1997 to assist individuals and families in local communities who are suffering hardship. In particular we supply essential items such as food, clothing and bedding without charge through our community events called Helping Hand Days and our volunteer run Helping Hand Centres. Since then we have expanded to run playgroup programs for the local community, numerous high school programs that assist in building positive self-esteem, an educational program, emotional aid ( Pastoral Care) and community events that help to bring joy at Christmas time to those in our community facing hardship (e.g. giving struggling families food, and Christmas presents to give to their children).
It is our vision to improve the quality of life in order to equip them for a better future. In this day we believe children in Australia should not have to miss out on necessities such as food, clothing and even a toy at Christmas. It is our desire to make a difference by providing assistance where we can to families in need. Since it began We Care has helped well over 300,000 people especially within the Dandenong and South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
