As we stand together and hold hands to support the vulnerable and put our best foot forward to promote harmony, plan for the future service needs of Australian Filipinos and care for our ageing Filipino “kababayans”… Let us launch in divine with joy and utterance that “he who began the good work will see it completed in time”.
We take pride in calling ourselves an accredited community service provider of home and community care who seeks to improve and deliver quality services.
In 2011, the new board of Management consulted with the community and local membership to look into the needs of second-generation migrants in Victoria. It was found that there is very limited programs and activities being offered to young people born of Filipino parentage and young newly arrived migrants.
The need to expand programs aside from Seniors programs have also been identified. The name change signifies current focus of the services provided by volunteers and staff: Community Services for Australian Filipinos and Filipino Australians but not limited to Australia.
