UnitingCare Werribee Support and Housing began in the early 80’s when congregation members of Crossroads Uniting Church and the Presbytery of Maribyrnong Valley became concerned about local youth homelessness.
A grant was secured and Werribee Youth Housing Inc., was established in 1985. Since then additional funding was secured for a range of support services and the name of the agency was changed to Werribee Support and Housing Group Inc.
In 2002 we became part of UnitingCare Victoria and Tasmania as UnitingCare Werribee Support and Housing (UCWS&H). Over the years additional funding has been progressively secured enabling us to address identified needs in a rapidly expanding local community.
The volunteers at Care and Concern have been helping the needy in the local area for decades. After years of cooperation, Care and Concern became part of UCWS&H in 2005, since then it has been an integral part of our organisation.
As a part of the mission of the Uniting Church of Australia, UnitingCare Werribee Support and Housing is committed to supporting individuals, families and the Wyndham community through advocacy and the provision of housing and support services. We express this commitment in the following Statement of Purpose:
We serve and empower our community through provision of support and housing services
