Father Bob Maguire FoundationInspired by the lifetime work of one of Australia's genuine heroes, the outspoken parish priest, Fr Bob Maguire, this is a foundation connected to the very fibre of our community and its pressing social issues.
The overriding principle of the Fr Bob Maguire Foundation is to ensure practical help is directed to the areas of most need at any given time.Most importantly, it's also a foundation that will hold true to the spirit of one man and his vision; maintaining a dedication to the issues society finds too hard or too loathesome to tackle.
Awarded the Order of Australia in 1989, a Centenary Medal in 2003 and named Entrepreneur of the Year for the Southern Region of Australia for a Social, Community or Not For Profit Organisation, Fr Bob Maguire is one of those men that, every once in a while, is worthy of building a foundation on.
Open Family Australia
Open Family Australia originated in the Melbourne suburb of St. Kilda in 1978. It began working in the streets among homeless and drug addicted adolescents who were alienated from the community.
Emerald Hill Mission
For many years Emerald Hill Mission has served the needy communities within the Cities of Melbourne and Port Phillip, including the Central Business District and Southbank.
The Mission's goal is to see alienated youth change their lifestyle and lead more productive lives, to bring some hope to the poor in our area and to offer the lonely somewhere to come and be welcomed with a smile and a cup of tea.
