Gethsemane works with appropriate State and Community agencies, in a form of practical partnership, when issues arise in regard to mental wellbeing.

Mission Statement

To provide the safety, security and permanence of a home to a group of men and women who have mental illness and/or other disabilities. By this means, to assist them to develop living skills and become independent.

Gethsemane community Inc has attempted to achieve this vision by two means:

1. It provides an actual physical home for a small group who are assisted to develop the skills to live independently and to make choices about their living. About fifty have been helped this way and a partnership with Ecclesia Housing http://www.ecclesiahousing.org.au provides the structure

2. It also provides support and advocacy for hundreds of people who live in ‘insecure’ housing in boarding houses and other places. It operates a large Christmas project to provide them with basics for living with personal dignity. Many groups and individual volunteers work in informal partnership with Gethsemane to achieve this
