About Us

The Early Morning Centre (EMC) is a community hub supporting Canberra people experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness and those experiencing social isolation. 
The EMC is a safe, respectful, and welcoming space where guests can access essential services, support and community activities. At the EMC, we focus on our guest's individual needs. 
We offer a complimentary, hot, nutritious breakfast five days a week, prepared and served by our volunteers. We also provide essential services and facilities, including showers, lockers, and internet access. In addition to this, we facilitate healthcare services, accommodation support and community activities.  

How your donation will help

The Early Morning Centre (EMC) provides a safe space for some of our city's most vulnerable people. With the help of dedicated volunteers, we offer a much-needed service that is more than just a meal. Our guests are provided with a place where they feel safe and respected, where they have a voice and can be heard, where they are part of a community that supports them. 
To continue this service, we rely on support from the Canberra community.
