Our why?

Established in 1854, City Mission is Australia's second oldest 'Mission', and has been there providing care and assistance to those who are most vulnerable in our community for 170 years. With the assistance of selfless staff, dedicated volunteers and generous donors and supporters we continue to provide a helping hand to thousands experiencing hardship, providing a way forward and a brighter future, transforming lives in the name of Jesus, in local communities across North and North West Tasmania.
