Our Motto

People, Place, Purpose

People

People are central to everything VincentCare does – our purpose, vision, mission and values. We work with individuals who are experiencing or are at risk of primary homelessness, including those who are ageing – we serve to provide food, shelter, care, support, guidance and encouragement.

Place

Adequate housing and related rights are encompassed in the major International Human Rights treaties. VincentCare advocates for these rights supporting the premise that a stable home provides the best environment for people to experience a sense of freedom, personal control, privacy, dignity, grow relationships and belong to a community.

Purpose

VincentCare recognises that people experiencing homelessness may present with a range of other complex factors, including those relating to drug and alcohol misuse, mental health, disability, behavioural issues and chronic health problems.
