Community Services endeavours to provide welfare services and pastoral care in South Australia for the relief of poverty, suffering and distress amongst children, young people and their families. We find ourselves celebrating life, seeing people for who they could become, and in encouraging life in all its fullness.
Our two main aims are:
• To enhance the wellbeing of children, young people and families through the minimisation of suffering and distress and the development of life skills
• To encourage a hopeful and empowered community of strong, healthy individuals and families who contribute to the growth of their communities
Collaboration and innovation are two guiding principles by which all projects and events we develop are measured against. Community Services continues to develop strong relationships with government and non-government organisations, local churches, and school communities to explore ways in which we can collaborate to meet our aims and fulfil our purpose.
