We are a small organisation making big changes in the City of Port Phillip. We can be considered a pilot project and an example of how society can be more socially and materially inclusive of all its members.
Apart from Fr Bob, who doesn't seem to have an off button and is still working in his 80's, we have three full time and two part time staff. Most of the heavy lifting and frontline work is done by our dedicated and exceptional volunteers.
