Our Vision

Our vision is to see people in tough places flourish through one-to-one mentoring, and to empower communities. We believe God cares deeply for those in the marginalized society and it is our mission to join with him. We are faith-based, but not faith-biased, and seek to benefit people no matter their background.

COACH stands for Creating Opportunities and Casting Hope. We empower our Partners to mobilize ordinary people of extra-ordinary community impact.

COACH partners with not-for-profits and churches to train volunteer mentors and match them with individuals in need. Over 12+ months, COACH participants meet with their mentors each week. A COACH Mentor is a friend with purpose, offering practical help and mentoring towards life goals.

The COACH program has been evaluated twice by Monash University. They found that the program improves the health and wellbeing of families with ongoing evaluation and monitoring embedded into our program methodology.
