Who Are C Care?
C Care are the leading frontline Jewish community organization supporting those who are experiencing food insecurity and social isolation. We work hand in glove with Jewish Care and other organizations who refer their clients to us who are experiencing food insecurity and social isolation issues.
Founded in 2011 as a community initiative and governed by a board, we support people and families in crisis/transition and the long term vulnerable predominantly in the Melbourne Jewish Community. C Care provides a full range of services including freshly prepared meals and food packages, self care and pharmaceuticals needs.
Critically, C Care’s programs focus on building a strong sense of community with our clients through human warmth and genuine friendships. Our social programs bring people back into the community who were completely isolated so they feel connected and engaged again. We see our clients as part of us as we are all one community.

What is C Care’s Role in the Community?
C Care ‘fills the gap’ once people have been housed, given basic financial support and provided mental health services by organizations like Jewish Care, DHHS, MJCF and many more. Once people are housed, many people find it hard to make ends meet and are still completely isolated and need support.
C Care steps in with authentic warmth and friendship and facilitates not only ensuring the most vulnerable have enjoyable, nutritious Kosher meals, we also facilitate bringing people back into the social fabric of feeling a sense
of community and human warmth and friendship, so critical to everyone’s wellbeing and life.
