The Mission is always there as a reliable support for the people in Hobart and surrounds who don't have a stable, warm home with a comfortable bed, enough food for the table or warm clothes for their family.
Every day Hobart City Mission provides emergency relief to people in need. We provide help for their immediate situation, and in the longer term we can connect people to services which will help them get back on their feet and to a stronger, stable lifestyle. To the person, it's a helping hand, not a handout, a gift from own community, to a member of our community, in desperate need.
We need the continued support of our community to continue our work. Can you help with a financial donation to the Winter Appeal?

It's mid morning, and the Moonah City Mission retail outlet is just getting ready for the day ahead, and this morning they're being visited by the volunteer coordinator, Sheralyn Jackson.
National Volunteer's week (May 12-18) gives good motivation for Ms Jackson to personally meet with all the people who make running the shop possible.
"Just to show them our appreciation, because the Hobart City Mission, the same as many community organisations, wouldn't be able to do what they do without the support of volunteers," she says.
