Prahran Mission provides a number of programs across five key service areas:
These programs provide a place for people to come and learn new skills, or maybe relearn old skills, to make friends and participate in activities. People can have fun and develop confidence in their ability to meet with people, and to accomplish their own goals within a structured environment developed for each particular client or within an informal drop-in centre environment which operates seven days a week.
The Retail Operations programs target the local community and aim to provide people with good quality, affordable services. In particular the Cafe and Goodwill Shop target people who are financially and/or socially disadvantaged.
Retail Operations are also responsible for the orientation and induction of volunteers to Prahran Mission.
