There are a number of ways you can get involved and support the ministry.
Fishers of Men consists of:
Corona virus response:
- meals on the street
- food parcels able to be picked up in the City and Logan.
- Meetings with meals, Wednesday & Sunday (temporarily suspended).
- First Stage house, (capacity 12) with full program
- Second Stage house, (capacity 7) transitional
- Street van outreach, Friday and Saturday nights
- Food parcels, clothes and blanket provision
- Furniture Ministry: recipients of services have been homeless who are exiting crisis situations, such as family domestic violence, or illness and many have children. We pick up furniture donations from the public, then re-gift to those in need
- Biannual outreach to Cherbourg.
- Saturday fundraising Car washes
The key areas of need at present are:
- Volunteers, especially admin assistance & mentor volunteers for first stage
- Another 2nd stage house, as demand exceeds supply.
- A place to store excess furniture.
- Vehicle maintainance.
‘Fishers Of Men’ is a registered charity. Donations $2 and over are tax deductible.
Donations of food from various businesses help provide for the weekly meals, and furniture donations are re-gifted to those in need, while monetary contributions from the Car Wash and donations help keep the buses on the road, the street van operating, Tuesday outreaches and Cherbourg biannual outreach operating.
