Mission Australia



Mission Australia is one of the country’s largest charities. It is also a top 500 private company according to BRW magazine. For decades Mission Australia had operated Campbell House in inner Sydney providing crisis accommodation to men who were homeless.

Changing client demographics, aging facilities and a shift in the public policy environment influenced Mission Australia to bring together a wide range of stakeholders – clients, policy makers, business people, philanthropists and the broader community – behind a new vision.

A capital campaign for $7 million was launched and successfully completed thanks to generous support from a small group of philanthropists and corporates. Underpinning this generosity was a multi-million dollar cornerstone investment from the New South Wales government. Renamed, Mission Australia Centre, facilities now house groundbreaking programs and services; the first of its kind in Australia, which provides a bridge to greater social and economic participation for homeless and marginalised people.
