the power of community

History

Twin Cities Life Ltd. (now “Townsville City Care Ltd.”) was established in 1998 and officially began operation in 1999 as a registered charity. It was established by a group of people who wanted to contribute to the families of Thuringowa & Townsville (hence the name “Twin Cities”) to receiving the social, moral, and emotional support of their peers. While the town has merged into one, the objectives of the organisation has never changed.

It started to run three seperate projects:

  • Tumbledown Towns Clowns

An creative education program for kids dealing with cooperation, reconciliation, and inclusiveness.

  • “Brain Food” for Kids

A feeding program for primary school students in the upper ross area. It received the Prime Ministers award for “Best community project”

  • Community Christmas Contributions

A project that skilled people who had been long term unemployed, and encouraged reconciliation with the communities of North Queensland and the Northern Territory.

In 2018, the organisation decided to change its name, in light of the fact that it was well established into the Townsville community. Today, Townsville City Care continues to serve the people of Townsville, Queensland, and internationally.

Vision

Our organisation is a public bennevolant organisation that continues to encourage reconciliation, inclusiveness, and support for individuals. We aim to help people in poverty and a financially disadvantaged cycle. We provide relief from poverty; education in social and community based areas; and offer opportunities for people to expand their life skills.

Our organisation seeks to help people who are:

  • “remote and rural” (due to geographic location)
  • children & youth
  • people “at risk” 
  • indigenous
  • disadvantaged by poverty
  • long-term unemployed  

As a “not-for-profit” organisation, we guarantee that all of our funds are for the benefit of our clients and community. Townsville City Care is 95% volunteer organised (we contract some accounting responsibilities to secure integrity in our operations). As a DGR, we are able to receive financial and in-kind support that are tax deductions for individuals and organisations.

Our passion to help is growing. Our hope for people is unlimited. Our team are continually looking for ways to grow and expand. Our capacity is only limited by the availability of resource – financial and human.
