40 years of providing support to those in need
At St. John’s we help families in crisis. This includes individuals, families and children escaping domestic violence, the homeless, people with mental health issues, and those who have become financially and emotionally disadvantaged. We provide a range of support services, including serving over 100 meals per day. We also provide referrals and emergency relief to those in desperate need.
Your support allows us to keep doing great work in the community. If you would like to donate money, please use the form on the left or click here to use our bpoint

St. John’s Crisis Centre relies heavily on volunteers to support the work we do every day. There are many volunteers, who support a small number of paid and part-time staff. Staff and volunteers manage the day to day operation of the centre which includes Welfare, Drop-In Centre, and administration, for the whole organisation. Working in an often confronting and challenging environment, our volunteers are a phenomenal source of passion and inspiration for the organisation. There are as many life-changing stories from volunteers who are involved with St. John’s as there are stories from the clients whose lives we impact.
