Overall, we aim to help people in crisis by meeting their immediate needs where they are at.


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.


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.

• 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
