"Standing together for Australians in need They say there’s power in numbers, and from our experience it’s true. We know from our 150 years of experience that the best way to change lives, build stronger communities and hope for the future is to work alongside others. Mission Australia works with government to deliver a range of community and employment support services that help individuals and families to stay housed, access education and gain the skills, training and confidence to find employment. We also work alongside community and advocacy groups, other not-for-profit organisations and businesses across the nation to stand up for people in need across Australia. Young people For most young people, the journey from childhood to adulthood is full of change, uncertainty and challenges. Along the way, they may experience stress at school, self-image doubts, relationship dramas and the pressure to choose a career path – things that are often considered to be part of the growing up process. For some young Australians, however, these everyday challenges are compounded by mental illness, family breakdown and even incarceration and homelessness. These are challenges that no one, especially those so young, should have to face alone."
