 CAN SCHOOLS VOLUNTEER?

Schools can support SJOS through “Fund-raising”. Whether a “gold coin” day or through a specific event, the opportunity to raise funds for SJOS is extremely important as it helps to cover the costs of maintaining the services offered to the community.

The transitional housing units provided by SJOS are managed by HomeGround Services, the letting agent. HomeGround Services accepts nominations from housing agencies across Melbourne and HomeGround Services can be contacted on 03 9537 7999.
