The 2017 Christmas Hamper Appeal was once again strongly supported by the local community. On 21 and 22 December 310 volunteers helped to pack and deliver 530 food hampers. A total of $18,295 was raised by the community to purchase hampers and provide emergency housing so that no child or family in Brisbane were on the street or in cars over Christmas.

Micah Projects was originally founded by St Mary’s Community, a community of Brisbane citizens committed to social justice, their faith and an inclusive society. We have benefitted from the unwavering support, commitment and generosity of the St Mary’s in Exile independent faith community, and the local West End community.

We thank you for your ongoing support of our mission, our work and the people we support.

Our People

Micah Projects is fortunate to have over 200 staff that share our social justice values and are committed to embodying our Mission and Vision.

We are a diverse workforce, hailing from 21 different countries. 75% of our staff identify as female, and 25% as male. As of 30 June 2018, the longest term of service is 23 years (our venerable CEO, Karyn Walsh).

In 1995, Micah Projects worked from a house behind St Mary’s Catholic Church, South Brisbane. As of this year we have expanded to 19 locations with a new service in Caboolture, and existing programs in Rockhampton and Townsville—we can no longer say we are only a Brisbane organisation.

Recruitment

This year our main area of recruitment has been with the Brisbane Domestic Violence Service which continues to be our largest program. We also recruited for positions in our Home for Good Cluster, Lotus Place, Family Support and Advocacy Team, and Mental Health and Disability Cluster.

Due to new projects we now work across three different awards:

  • Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Awards
  • Children’s Services Award
  • Restaurant Industry Award.

Training

Micah Projects believes that the better we support and train our staff, the better they can support the participants of our programs. We held the following professional development and training sessions over 2017–2018:

  • Drug and Alcohol Training with Insight and Dovetail
  • Case Notes Training with Karen Healy, University of Queensland
  • Modern Governance Principles and Board Member Effectiveness with NFP Success
  • Information Sessions with the Office of the Public Guardian and Public Trustee
  • NDIS Information Sessions with Social Scaffolding
  • Indigenous Cultural Awareness Training with Tom Kirk
  • Continuing Emergency Response training with Chillifire.

Student placement

We value students’ contributions and offer placement opportunities across various programs and teams where service delivery is a core activity. This year, we offered placements to students studying Social Work, Masters in Mental Health, Community Services, Human Services, and Peace and Conflict studies.

The educational institutes we partnered with were: University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, Griffith University, Monash University, Central Queensland University, Australian Catholic University and TAFE Brisbane. From those institutions, 23 students were placed in Micah Projects programs.

Students have identified that their learning experience has been meaningful and relevant to their studies, and we are delighted that several students have continued working with us in various paid positions after finishing placements.

We appreciate the contribution that volunteers and students have made over the last financial year, and thank our partners and donors for their generosity.

 

“What I love about my job is the community we build and the voices we give to those most vulnerable in our society.”

Khloe, ED Frequent Presenters Program. Staff member for 5 years.

“What I love about my job is the many student groups who get an ‘aha’ moment when I speak about the work of Micah Projects and how we differ from other community organisations.”
