Who we are?

Foothills Community Care is a not-for-profit grassroots Christian missional agency of Churches of Christ, Victoria/Tasmania (CCVT) which walks alongside those who are in need of a safe place to connect in the Dandenong Ranges and surrounding foothills areas (Ferntree Gully and Upwey).

Established in 2002, Foothills provides places where people can connect and engage as they address issues such as family and domestic violence, addictions, homelessness, poverty, mental health issues, and social isolation. Many of our friends come from challenging backgrounds, and we seek to create a place offering dignity and hope without judgment, where people can feel safe, valued and loved.

Our connection often begins by providing a hearty, nutritious, home-cooked meal to all who walk in. However, it is much more than just a meal, it is a welcome into a positive and inclusive community for people who may not connect anywhere else. For many it is a hand up, not a handout.

Foothills has a team of over 200 volunteers annually, across our 8 programs. It also has a small part time staff team.

Mission: To create open and inclusive communities of love and acceptance, overcoming isolation and despair.

Vision: Our vision is a world where everybody is able to live in safe, warm, inclusive communities. We work to combat despair, isolation and loneliness with acceptance, hospitality, love, community and grace.
