Background

Crossfire Support Services works under the umbrella of the Message of the Cross Indigenous Corporation, an Aboriginal Community Controlled organization based in Ipswich Queensland, operating since 2020. Crossfire Support Services works in the local area to help with community development initiatives, primarily through short-term and long-term projects and operates solely on our giving program, fundraising efforts, with a small team of culturally diverse employees and volunteers. Overall, we aim to help people in crisis by meeting their immediate needs where they are at.

Aim

The aim of Crossfire Support Services is to meet basic needs to foster a diverse range of activities to promote sustainable, healthy lifestyles and community well-being of participants, who are in crisis. Delivered by increasing their engagement by way offering discounted household items, food assist and soup kitchens; as we do believe, no one should have to go without the essentials, to address health outcomes.

Objective

The primary objective is to provide a safe space to case manage individual participants with a strong emphasis on identifying immediate needs in a culturally sensitive, caring and supportive environment.

Outcomes

• Greater family participation in public programs
• Increase engagement of community members in their own health outcomes
• Creation of physical safe spaces to support reintegration of local social support service environments, fostering the transfer and sharing of knowledge around household budgets
• Participants will be able to make informed decisions regarding their lives and will be able to better manage their situations more effectively with the skills they learn from the activities delivered
• Connection to support services to ensure they are supported and maintained
