Why We Do What We Do

The mission of 4C’s Crisis Relief Centre is to minister hope, generosity and love through practical aid and Christ like provision to people in crisis within the Cardinia Shire community.

We aim to show people the love and faithfulness of Jesus Christ through our services.

The organisation is a multi-denominational project of the combined Churches of Cardinia who seek to unify the community and provide a safe place for anyone experiencing crisis.

4C’s is helping over 200 families per day and around 40,000 separate individuals a year, giving us an estimated total of 200,000 visits per year.

4C’s provides Emergency Finance, Food relief, Emergency Accommodation, Clothing, Bedding, Budgeting and financial advice, Debt Liaison, Crisis and long term counseling.

Cardinia Combined Churches Caring began in 1997 to provide emergency food relief for the residents of the Cardinia Shire.

To be eligible for assistance you must live in the Cardinia Shire and be experiencing a crisis. Proof of residence must be provided at every visit.

4C’s is manned entirely by volunteers from the local community and at present there are approximately 80 volunteers involved in different areas of the centre’s work.
