Meet Our Supporters


Life certainly isn’t easy for every Bayside family, despite the perception that residents in this area are all affluent and blessed. Sadly, there are people here suffering from financial difficulties, family disputes and domestic violence.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are able to offer a wide range of essential services including counselling rooms, family mediation and community houses.
