New Hope Care is the charitable arm of New Hope Church Brisbane. Over 6 years ago New Hope Church had a vision to bring hope and a future to those who were struggling with homelessness challenges in inner-city Brisbane. Out of this New Hope Care was born and has since then become a registered charity with the Australian Charities and is recognised by the Not-For-Profit Commission as a Deductible Gift Recipient. New Hope Care has a separate governance with its own Gift Fund Regulations, Executive and audited accounts. It is home-grown charity based in Red Hill and serving people in need in the near and CBD communities.
