Our mission is to build the bridge from despair to direction. Our dedicated team are committed to the rescue, recovery and repair of each person that comes in contact with IM Caring.
IM Caring, for over a decade has served the marginalised in Brisbane city. We have distributed thousands of free food parcels containing wholesome foods, soft drinks & juices, vegetables, fruit and personal items.
Our help ranges from in-home set up including furniture, household items, bedding and electrical items, to soup kitchen and crisis care packs of food and personal hygiene items.
Children are high on our agenda. No child should ever go hungry or cold. Our goal is to come into the lives of those in need and give them practical support and hope for a better future.
Being homeless keeps my thoughts on the suicide channel almost constantly.
WHO NEEDS OUR SUPPORT?
Groups at higher risk of experiencing poverty include: children in jobless families/households, households relying on limited casual or part-time employment, single parent households, and Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people.
Poverty is an issue that affects many aspects of our community not just the poor. Family income can be adversely affected without warning due to job loss, sickness, mental health and other unforeseen circumstances.
