OUR HISTORY

NewHope Community Care is a practical outreach to the community, supporting people in times of crisis, need, grief, emotional and financial distress. We are here for the tough times and to help you build for a better future. NewHope Community Care was registered as a not for profit organisation in 2009? and operated from the NewHope Baptist church offices. In 2011 the Community Care Centre moved next door, to 522 Middleborough Road, Blackburn North. In 2017, NewHope Community Care move to the newly built offices in the main NewHope building on 3 Springfield Road.

NewHope Community Care is a public benevolent institution which provides relief and care for the residents of the City of Whitehorse and the surrounding community.

This is done by providing relief care, developmental care and advocacy care to all people experiencing hardship, as we endeavour to empower people to transform their lives.
