Many Rooms is a drop-in centre for homeless and disadvantaged people, located in North Melbourne and an initiative of City on a Hill since 2009. Many Rooms offers free nutritious meals, recreational activities and a safe place to hang out on weekends when other services are closed for low income and homeless people in need. We serve over 160 participants per week, which translates to serving over 8,000 delicious meals a year (and many thousands of cups of tea and coffee!).
Many Rooms fosters improved physical and mental health outcomes, a sense of belonging and connection to community and welfare services.
Many Rooms provides:
- practical relief in a welcoming and sustainable community structure,
- volunteers training in order to engage with people facing disadvantage,
- safe and friendly places of encounter between those who are doing it tough and ordinary people who want to help.
Many Rooms is always looking at ways to expand services to demonstrate God’s love to the homeless and marginalised in our community. We are aiming to create a range of services to meet diverse needs in the community, to offer assistance to people doing it tough. Many Rooms sees great opportunities to continue to expand its services and outreach in other cities of Australia.
