The Lighthouse Café is a welcoming community café providing free breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as support to people from all walks of life, especially those living on the margins of society.
The Café sees a range of different people accessing the service, including people who suffer from drug and alcohol addictions, mental health and general health issues, homelessness, living in boarding houses and rooming houses, asylum seekers and even international students. The Café is open to everyone and is there to provide support and a sense of community to anyone in need.
The Café’s primary purpose is about building relationships. Melbourne Project 614 offers crisis support and intervention, information, practical assistance and importantly, ongoing support for people in crisis.
A volunteering day in the Cafe commences at 8.15am with a briefing, and finishes at 2pm.
This event is best served by 10 - 15 volunteers.
