About us

Every day St John’s Crisis Centre provides food, clothing and other essential services for Gold Coasters in their time of crisis.

We are a non-denominational charity located in the heart of the Surfers Paradise that is devoted to helping our communities’ members who need “a hand up”.

With a range of services from take away lunches right through to helping people find work or required services.

Last year alone we were able to serve over 39,500 meals to people in need and all because of our community’s generous spirit.

All our services are because amazing people and organisations donate their time and money.

Need support?

Sometimes you find yourself in a position where you need a hand up. Our job is to help you when you need it most.

We have a huge range of services that are free of charge and designed to get you through the immediate crisis and then build your way back up from there. Whether it's a simple lunch or helping you find work, we will be there to guide you.
