There are a number of trained volunteers available to assist people who walk in off the street or co-ordinate appointments in order to help evaluate their needs. There is a well-stocked onsite pantry and a voucher system sponsored by various local businesses.

Mitcham Hills Inter-Church Council partners with Schools Ministry Group (SMG) who work closely with SA Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) as a ‘Service Provider’ for the Chaplaincy Program in our schools through the engagement of a Pastoral Care Worker (formerly known as CPS Worker).

Third Culture Kid (TCK) is a term describing people who spend a significant part of childhood living outside their passport countries.
Kath is an Interserve partner, relying on team support as she sets up a framework to support Third Culture Kids (TCKs) as they leave their host countries and return to their passport countries. She is passionate to see young people adjusting to the constant transitions in their lives and to have their identity grounded in Christ.
Kath keeps in touch with her supporters primarily via facebook (contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org for details).
