Mission

To create a place where we respect the equal dignity of every person. To offer assistance in a spirit of solidarity with those in need.

“Respect for the human person considers the other ‘another self.’ It presupposes respect for the fundamental rights that flow from the dignity intrinsic of the person.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church #1944

The Shopfront is to be an Agency of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Perth, Western Australia, serviced predominantly by volunteers. It will be set out as a relaxed and homely environment where all people feel welcome.

Purpose

The role and function of The Shopfront is to relieve poverty and suffering in an environment that offers practical assistance, fellowship and hospitality. The Shopfront is a service run predominately by a team of volunteers who offer assistance in a friendly, non bureaucratic manner.

We would aim to offer everyone who enters the Shopfront some form of immediate help. However, we recognise that this would often mean pursuing lines of information until we obtain more suitable assistance for the person. We network with other agencies to enable us to effectively assist people.

We aim to empower people in the Church to use their gifts and talents in a spirit of solidarity to assist those in need of assistance.
