Many of Soul Cafe’s guests are dealing with issues of homelessness, drug or alcohol addiction, crime or violence, poverty, separation, mental health or illness concerns and accommodation needs.
Soul Cafe’s desire is to do more than just serve a meal. The ultimate mission of Soul Cafe is to see vulnerable cafe guests placed on a path towards increased safety, health and purpose. They aim to lift a group of people that are less fortunate to a greater level of lifestyle within our community. They do this through a comprehensive approach that assists them to work through their individual issues and to re-engage back into society. As such the meals provided are an avenue to link cafe guests with other necessary services including drug, alcohol and substance abuse programs, accommodation links, Centrelink referral, mental health counselling, refuge referral, haircuts, Legal Aid, Podiatry and a free doctor’s clinic.
Soul Cafe relies primarily on financial sponsorship from corporations and individuals, and fundraising endeavours. They are a local community organisation addressing local community needs, supported by local community corporate and private members.
