We also have outreach centres in two areas of our large shire and we operate a local charity store.

In 2011 the 4Cs assisted approximately 40,000 individuals and are presently faced with a growing daily clientele. As a charity the 4Cs need to raise approximately $500,000 per year to keep their many services available to those in need.

Within our shire a quarter of the population is living in crisis. There is a daily growing number of needy, disadvantaged and in crisis residents that cannot feed or house themselves or their families. Their aim is to provide the ever growing clientele and their families with a variety of assistance that can move them past their point of need and to a more secure future.
