Early Morning Centre


The Early Morning Centre (EMC) is a safe, respectful and welcoming space for people experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness. EMC provides a large range of services; breakfast, lunch, cuppas, phone, computers, showers, laundry, mail service, lockers, emergency food parcels, medical, dental, pet clinic, referral, information and support that meet individual needs. The EMC partners with community and government services that visit the Centre providing on site information and support. These include Centrelink, accommodation services, Alcohol and other Drug services, legal support and information services being just some of the wide range on offer. A range of fun and social activities are held at the Centre that aim to reduce social isolation and provide a sense of connection and self worth. These activities range from current affairs discussion group, computer classes, art and craft, choir and library to name just a few. We work towards providing a fuller life for our service users through providing connection and support focusing on individual needs. The EMC values positive connections, dignity, respect and a fulfilling life for our guests, staff and volunteers.
