The Comfort Care Foundation’s Café at 40 Leeds St Footscray fosters the spirit of community – welcoming, supportive and a safe space for anyone who needs it.

    They help feed Footscray’s homeless community, and recently started a ‘Pay it Forward’ program, where anyone can leave a gift to go towards a coffee, soup, chapatti or even a couple of meals for someone unable to pay.

    “Because we Care”, is the motto at CCF, with a vision to bring comfort, hope & benevolent relief to disadvantaged groups including young people, women, children & people with disabilities & the poor.

    With your help they will reduce social inequalities and homelessness, and be a support for disadvantaged people as well as victims of abuse.

    Comfort Care always welcomes volunteers, businesses, organisation’s and community groups to partner with them. They we will be hosting a fundraising dinner on the 17th of September to raise funds towards the cause.
