Community Care assists the community through various networks as we aim not to duplicate services that are already available. Many of these networks operate through relationship, and are informal, or specific to an area of work. However, we do have a few key partnerships:



Jubilee Housing Inc. is a community housing initiative of the Box Hill and NewHope Baptist churches and South Croydon Anglican church.
