85 years of Community

Our story began in 1935 during the Great Depression, when one in three Australians were out of work.

During times of crisis, it is important to know that help is available. See how we've been supporting our community for 85 years.

What our community is saying

"I lost my job and we got very behind in bills - my husband & I became stressed as to how we would put food on the table. CatholicCare helped us pay our bills and with food relief... It lifted that weight off and relieved some stress, so we could concentrate on our children.”
