  Grow Health Program

Grow Mental Health program supported by Grants SA.

Every Tuesday at 7 PM – 17 Herbert Road West Croydon

Grow – Health Program – Supported by the Multicultural Infrastructure fund upgrade of community facilities. A proven program for mental wellbeing. – The more we share, the more we talk, the more chance we can break down the stigma within our community about this Illness. One in four under the age of 25 has a mental illness of some sort. If we are able to talk about it and support those that are isolated we can maybe save a life.
We will set up this program with the help of Grow. This program is not just directed to our youth. It is open to all ages. Our experience has leaded us to believe that this is a growing issue and receiving professional help is more difficult than we think. Also some professional agencies are no longer accepting new patience. Other agencies are booked up 4 to 6 weeks. Not many people can afford the charges of some of these professionals. This alone is a serious issue that each organisation like ours must take seriously.
We have created a more comfortable and welcoming venue for the South Australian Community.

Mobile Community Assistance Program – Commenced 2018

This program is proudly supported by : Foodbank, CMI Toyota and Grants SA

This enables us to deliver our existing services to the wider community. It will benefit those that are most vulnerable and especially new migrants .

With this service we have noticed that there is a growing demand for new migrants needing the appropriate services that suit their needs. The demand has been much greater than what we can handle and by opening an office we are able to cater to a much wider target group and reach so much more people.

• Settlement services program: We assist new migrants with all their settlement needs.
• Support our youth community with all types of life challenges.
• Connect with other communities to enable us to provide a wide range of support to our community.
• Deliver food hampers to those that are not so fortunate, especially around Christmas.
• Support other communities with their own projects.
• Funeral Services – We supply a wide range of support for families that have lost a loved one. We assist people with planning of their funeral .We can also help financially.
• We support the elderly with connecting them with other people their age. Isolation is a serious issue with the elderly so we try to keep them busy with many projects that involve them in connecting with other people.
• We also donate to some local charities and communities that are doing good work to benefit our south Australian community.
