Our hope is to create justice and respond to injustice at the personal, social and structural levels in society, including government, church and business
To respond to people who experience exclusion, poverty, injustice and social isolation so that they may experience inclusion, economic wellbeing, justice and connection within their community of choice.
- Connection to Community
Who we help
We engage with people in the Brisbane who are
- In crisis and need support.
- Experiencing or at risk of homelessness
- Experiencing domestic and family violence
- Part of a family in crisis, including women and children
- Young pregnant mothers, young parents and their families
- Survivors of institutional child abuse, known as Forgotten Australians
- Experiencing chronic homelessness and complex needs, who require housing with extra on-site support
- Vulnerable and unable to access mainstream healthcare and wellness
- Socially isolated, marginalised and excluded from opportunity
Micah Projects bridges silos of care. We partner across service areas and with community and government services to provide integrated support that more effectively meets the complex and interlinked challenges vulnerable people face every day.
By working together, we can pool resources and coordinate a comprehensive response for better outcomes.
This is how we move beyond managing crises, to begin solving the real challenges at the heart of social issues and create lasting change.
At Micah Projects, we believe that every adult and child has a right to:
- A home, income, healthcare, education, safety, dignity, and community connection.
- Access to a broad range of personal, social, intellectual, economic and spiritual resources for personal and community wellbeing
- Forums to participate in decisions which impact on their lives at an individual, social and structural level
- Equity, recognising the impact of age, gender, economic status, disability, sexual orientation, culture, and religious belief.
- Opportunities for healing and redress for past and present experiences of neglect and abuse.
- Resources to enable restoration of relationships with self, family, community, and social and religious institutions.
We endorse the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.
We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people (First Peoples) as the traditional custodians of this land, the history and impact of colonisation, and support the right of First Peoples to self-determination and cultural expression.
Our vision for reconciliation is to close the gap in the life expectancy of Australia's First Peoples. We are determined in our commitment to work respectfully in partnership with First Peoples so they experience inclusion, economic wellbeing, justice and connection within their community of choice.
Micah Projects has an ongoing commitment to Workplace Gender Equality and we report annually on the gender profile of our organisation.
