How to help us

Wills and Bequests

City Mission is responsible for giving people and families a helping hand in many different areas.

There are always new issues developing that need  funding. Crisis accommodation for women is in short supply throughout Northern Tasmania and there is an increasing need to  provide services to men in mid to senior years who are battling with forced retirement or singleness.

Your legacy could also be invested in new capital projects such as purchasing a  building  to facilitate a new or extended  service to the community.

City Mission is a part of many people’s lives, from the very young who participate in Rainbows to older adults       struggling with poverty or homelessness.   We are able to offer  emotional support and a  physical means of claiming back  lives from controlling and devastating circumstances.
