Helping Hands Mission Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation that runs seven opportunity shops across Melbourne and rural Victoria, and provides emergency support to Victorian families and individuals who are suffering as a result of extreme circumstance.

Extreme circumstance can strike anyone at any time. Natural disasters, such as drought or bushfire, have an enormous impact on the day-to-day lives of many families. Similarly, illness or unexpected loss of income can place people in a sudden and very difficult situation. We currently work in partnership with a number of local and rural aid agencies to ensure the emergency and material aid support we provide is accessible and directed across a broad range of community needs.

Our op shops are a treasure trove of quality clothing, footwear, books, toys, furniture, homewares and bric-a-brac, and we keep our prices low to ensure that everyone can afford to wear nice clothes, furnish their homes, and buy toys for their kids. This provides a sense of dignity to those who need our help most. We also run Work for the Dole programs, giving job seekers the opportunity to develop their skills and improve employability, and we offer meals 5 days a week in our Community Kitchen at 492 Fullarton Road, Airport West (just $3 for a generous buffet-style lunch, $2 for morning tea, and light refreshments for afternoon tea, free of charge). 

As well as being a resource and a meeting place for the community, these op shops provide the funding we need to deliver programs that focus on providing emergency aid, material aid and opportunities for social inclusion. Every dollar spent in our op shops goes back to helping the community. 

Come and visit us today and see why Helping Hands op shops have become an integral part of the community during our 12 years of operation. Our op shops are located in Airport West, East Keilor, Roxburgh Park, Preston, Sunshine, and Bridgewater on Loddon (just outside of Bendigo).
