Insurance Advisernet Foundation's Generous Donation Fuels Sacred Heart Mission's Vital Services

The Insurance Advisernet Foundation recently made a donation of $25,000 to Sacred Heart Mission, a pivotal organisation dedicated to supporting individuals facing homelessness, deep disadvantage, and social exclusion. This generous donation has significantly bolstered the Mission's ability to provide crucial services to those in need, highlighting the power of community and corporate support in making a tangible difference in people's lives.

A Beacon of Hope: Women's House in St Kilda

One of the primary beneficiaries of the Insurance Advisernet Foundation's donation is the Women's House in St Kilda. This Engagement Hub stands as a sanctuary for all women, including cisgender and transgender individuals, who find themselves navigating the challenges of homelessness, financial instability, or barriers to social inclusion. Over the past financial year, there’s been an impressive 529 presentations at the Women's House, offering a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment tailored to meet the unique needs of each visitor.

Wellness Place: Nurturing Mind and Body

The donation will also play a critical role in supporting Sacred Heart Mission's Wellness Place, a haven designed to address the impacts of trauma, addiction, isolation, and chronic health issues. Last financial year, the Wellness Place was able to host 1,666 appointments and group activity attendances . Through a variety of groups, educational programs, and complementary and allied health therapies, the Wellness Place works tirelessly to foster healing and well-being for those it serves.

Feeding the Community: The Dining Hall

Perhaps one of the most immediate impacts of the donation will be felt in Sacred Heart Mission's Dining Hall. In the 2022-23 period, the Mission served 92,822 nutritious meals to the community. The Dining Hall, known as the heart of the Mission, offers a warm and welcoming space where hundreds of individuals experiencing homelessness and social disadvantage can enjoy a community meal and engage with the Mission's services every day of the year.

A Momentous Presentation

The presentation of the cheque was facilitated by John Burke, an Authorised Representative of Insurance Advisernet, handing it over to Hang Vo, CEO of Sacred Heart Mission. This moment underscored the partnership and shared commitment between the Insurance Advisernet Foundation and Sacred Heart Mission to making a positive impact in the community.

A Testament to Community Support

The Insurance Advisernet Foundation's donation to Sacred Heart Mission is a powerful example of how corporate philanthropy can play a crucial role in supporting vital community services. Through its generous contribution, the Foundation has helped ensure that Sacred Heart Mission can continue its invaluable work, providing support, nourishment, and hope to those who need it most. This act of kindness not only benefits the immediate recipients but also strengthens the fabric of the community, demonstrating that together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of others.
