Launceston City Mission
exists to serve the local community.
Seeking to be flexible and responsive
in meeting the community’s needs.
As a community organisation our purpose is to serve the community’s people who are marginalised through poverty, abuse, addiction and other unfortunate circumstances that have brought hard times for them to bear.
It therefore goes without saying that all our initiatives are focused on charitable work and social enterprise.
