St. Merkorious Charity / Future Programs

All our community services and programs are dedicated to our mission – to make a difference in our community by tackling poverty at its root. St Merkorious Charity empowers and motivates the people who come into our care. We operate our different programs and community services to ensure that we can support as many people as we can. We spread kindness through a helping hand, ensuring our communities are safer and healthier than ever by contributing our utmost. The following are future programs coming to St Merkorious Charity in the near future.

Transitional Housing Project

A Home is Where Healing Starts

Housing is a continuing issue in NSW despite the government’s continued efforts to match the demand for social housing. Transitional housing is short to medium subsidised housing for people experiencing homelessness, or at risk of homelessness. There are many complex factors that can lead to someone living in a transitional house, from fleeing domestic violence to chronic homelessness from financial insecurity to addiction.

Working on the front lines feeding the homeless and other people experiencing disadvantage has given St Merkorious a unique perspective on the needs that people require to get back onto their feet. Some only need a place to shower and sleep for a few nights. Others may need kindness, referrals to community support, connections, stable accommodation, and further assistance to get back on track and start the healing process that can only be found when you’re feeling safe and secure.

Our project has begun with PAYCE FOUNDATION’s support to begin supporting the homeless, those at risk of homelessness a place to stay, recover, and transition into independence.

Mental Health

Taking a Holistic View on Health

St Merkorious Charity understands that health is essential to living well. A positive outlook is well-supported when a person’s health is maintained well. We understand that health is not just about the physical. Our community services support people in our community who are struggling, but we know one of our best values as a charity is our commitment to being human-focused.

Our volunteer’s care, cheer, and enthusiasm to reach out to our community and help out others with a kind and welcoming hand is part of our charity’s core identity. Hope, kindness and connection are parts of ensuring health too.

Our charity works hard to check in on people, break the stigma, provide psychological aid, and ensure that during an individual’s darkest times they know it is never hopeless. Every life has a story and worth, and we are part of its story.
